I've posted on this topic before, and now more and more family lawyers are reporting that increasing numbers of young couples are entering into pre-marital agreements - at the insistence of their parents.
Often, the only way couples in their twenties and thirties can buy a home is with financial help from their parents, and many parents appear to want to protect this investment in the event of their child divorcing. They also see it as a way of safeguarding their child's future inheritance.
These agreements are almost always referred to in the press as 'pre-nups', and many people do not realise that they can also be entered into after the marriage has already taken place.
