A premarital agreement (traditionally and commonly referred to as a "prenuptial agreement" or "prenup") is a contract regarding property and other rights and obligations relating to marriage/separation entered into by a couple intending to marry. Once entered into, the terms and effects of a premarital agreement are typcially not implicated until a dissolution of marriage or legal separation case is initiated by one of the parties. A marital agreement is a contract entered into by a married couple and affecting the couple’s property or other rights. There are many legal procedures, requirements, and limitations to the terms and contents of both marital and premarital agreements.
