MOSCOW, July 5 - RIA Novosti. The conclusion of a prenuptial agreement seems to be superfluous when it comes to young people who decided to get married at the beginning of their adult life and have not yet managed to acquire real estate, business or other significant property for themselves. At the same time, the reasonable exercise of the right to a prenuptial agreement, its conclusion, is very useful for the family, Anatoly Mironov, head of the branch of the Moscow Bar Association “Zashchita”, told the Prime agency.
According to him, initially, "in a period when there is still nothing to share, the marriage contract casts doubt on the trust of the spouses in each other."
It's another matter if a young couple has wealthy relatives who want to make a serious gift for the wedding, or one of the spouses inherits significant property, then it is better for the future husband and wife to immediately define in the marriage contract their rights and obligations for mutual maintenance, ways participation in each other's income, the procedure for each of them to bear family expenses; determine the property that will be transferred to each of the spouses in the event of divorce.
