Young people get prenuptial agreement savvy

Nearly half (44 per cent) of young people aged between 18 to 24-years old want a prenuptial agreement, according to new figures.

A survey by Dawsons found that the second biggest market for prenup agreements was for 45 to 54-years-old who were considering getting married again.

The younger group may have been inspired by the examples of numerous celebrities and high-profile cases in the UK.

Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle has asked her fiance to sign a prenuptial agreement.

Currently, law watchers in the UK are waiting to see the outcome of a Supreme Court ruling on the legality of prenuptial agreements.

Katrin Radmancher, a German heiress reportedly worth £100 million, is being challenged by former husband Nicolas Granatino who said he was unaware of her vast wealth when he signed a prenup agreement in 1998.

He signed for a £1 million settlement and is currently calling for £6 million.

If the Court rules in favour of Ms Radmancher, it will effectively make prenuptials legally binding.

Young couples could find that creating a prenuptial agreement could make any eventuality easier to manage, especially if they are sharing income and property together.
