Why not try a Postnup?

Happy belated Fourth of July, everyone!  I hope everyone enjoyed their day off and the beautiful weather!

Now on to more newsworthy matters…

You frequently hear about pre-nuptial agreements in marriages, but there is a growing trend of post-nuptial agreements.  CNBC and the Today Show recently publicized an article about postnups available here.  The article specifically states: 

Couples consider “postnups for three main reasons: They ran out of time to put together a prenup, they are trying to give their marriage a last chance or one party receives a large gift or inheritance, such as a family vacation home, with strings attached.

Sometimes a postnup winds up simply making a divorce agreement easier to reach. Rupert Murdoch and his wife, Wendi, signed a postnup after each of their two daughters was born, so the courts will decide how those might apply.

Kelley Holland, the author of the article, goes further to imply that the use of postnups will go up due to the recent changes with DOMA.
