When it comes to millennials’ views on marriage, perhaps Kanye West said it best — “we want prenup.”
According to a recent study conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), 62% of divorce attorneys surveyed reported an increase in the total number of clients requesting prenuptial agreements in recent years. Among those attorneys who reported an increase, 51% said there was an increase in the number of millennial clients signing prenups.
Jacqueline Itani, an Associate at Stutman, Stutman & Lichtenstein, LLP with a strong background in Matrimonial law and Family and Divorce Mediation, spoke to Business Insider about why young people are interested in signing prenuptial agreements and protecting themselves in the event of a divorce.
Here are the biggest reasons why more millennials are interested in getting prenups than ever before.
