Comment on divorce & family law 

Pre-nup brings security to marriage

Marriage brings with it certain legal rights and responsibilities, not least of which is joining a couple’s assets. When a couple are simply living together (and there is no living together agreement), assets they buy and share jointly can be difficult to sort out if they split up.
