Prenuptial Agreements

Most experts think prenuptial agreements are most common for second marriages; however, numbers show that a large number of people younger than 35 are getting prenuptial agreements.

Prenuptial Agreements describe the terms and conditions governing the division of property following a divorce.

Prenuptial agreements are most popular for the following age brackets among people 26 to 32, with 23 percent of the clients seeking prenuptial agreements.

Here is a breakdown by age of these seeking prenuptial agreements: 18-25, 11 percent; 26-32, 23 percent; 33-39, 21 percent; 40-46, 18 percent; 47-53, 14 percent; 54-60, 6 percent; 61-67, 2 percent
; and 68 and above, 1 percent.

The median age for a first marriage in the United States is 26. Most second marriages (i.e. where at least one of the spouses has been married before) occur after the age of 35.
