This simultaneously challenging and potentially liberating reality is true regardless of your age and regardless of how long you have been married to your spouse.

Prenups: some issues can be included, while others can't

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a blog post about prenuptial agreements, and how you and your spouse should at least consider the possibility of a prenup even if you ultimately decide against signing such a contract. It is still an important discussion to have -- but it's up to you and your spouse to determine whether or not such an important contract is right for your marriage.
