A person may anticipate receiving future property such as an inheritance, they may also be in the fortunate position of having multi-generational wealth in their family. Beyond financial concerns – prenuptial agreements can make an eventual divorce much more efficient, and less costly and time consuming.

Can a prenup agreement be discarded if both parties agree that they don’t want it anymore?

Yes – parties involved in a contract (such as prenuptial agreement) are free to mutually disregard the terms or change the terms in the future.
