    Hi There,

    This is unknown territorty to me. ie. Assets in a marriage. :eek:

    First, does a couple become one legal entity?. Do I take on my partners' debts.

    Secondly. Do Pre-Nups work? How legal are they? Where do you get them? How much do they cost?

    Any links for more information would be appreciated.



    Thanks,
    Johny. :)

    Come on! Someone must have married. If you have assets, how do you protect yourself in a breakup? :confused:

    You make sure you're the one doing the breakup and sell everything off under your partners nose and clear out the bank accounts before the solicitors come in.
