In today’s Friends Talk Finance episode, we discuss the the taboo topic of Prenuptial Agreements. Why are people afraid to talk about them? Should you sign one or not as a physician? What are the financial implications of not getting a prenup? All of these questions are answered today as Bonnie and Carrie discuss all things to do with Prenups!

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why you need to think of the financial implications of marriage and divorce as a physician.
  • How, “Divorce is a weapon of mass destruction,” is a great quote to describe why you need a prenup.
  • What can and cannot be included in a prenup and why.
  • How you can think of a prenup in a positive way as a romantic contract.
  • How you can make a decision about alimony in your prenup.
  • Why each party needs to have their own attorney drafting their side of the prenup and each person needs to pay for their attorney separately as well.
  • Why Carrie doesn’t have a prenup and why Bonnie will get one if she gets married.
  • How you should invest in your marriage so you don’t have to worry so much about a prenup or postnup.
