A leading divorce lawyer has said that the younger generation of future newlyweds are increasingly concerned with ensuring that assets such as pets and alcohol collections are considered before they & # 39; I do & # 39; say.

A recent study found that 42 percent of women plan to sign a prenup with their partner before walking down the aisle, compared to 36 percent of men who feel the same way.

Logical: according to a leading law firm, practical, rather than romantic, prenups for walking down the aisle are on the rise

The investigation commissioned by the British law firm Stephensons, revealed the increase in what they & # 39; practical prenups & # 39; call: an update of the usual written contract entered into by a couple before the marriage, which determines in advance what will happen to assets in the event of a divorce.

It was emphasized that 57 percent of women believe that companies should be included in a prenup, compared to 53 percent of men.

Interestingly, 42 percent of women also said that a future prenup that they would draft pets should contain compared to 35 percent of men.

The term & # 39; pet nup & # 39; actually began to circulate last year when lawyers saw an increase in couples deciding what would happen to their beloved animals.

Earlier this year, Direct Line Pet Insurance revealed that nearly 30,000 divorce cases reaching a courtroom relate to a pet conflict.

The law firm was of the opinion that the & # 39; top priorities & # 39; of young women & # 39; very wise & # 39; turned out to be – with 75 percent for a home and a second home when considering what should be included in a prenup (compared to 71 percent of men) and 69 per cent choosing savings and investment (compared to 63 percent of the men.)

Thinking a bit outside the box, men seemed to consider other material items, with 50 percent opting for cars and motorcycles, although 43 percent of women did.

Although many prenups around the world include clauses about what happens when a party starts drinking alcohol excessively, it is quite unusual for a prenup to actually outline who has the right to become the owner of a drink collection.

About 31 percent of the men surveyed said that wine, whiskey and gin collections should be included (as opposed to only 13 percent of women).

Amanda Rimmer, partner in the family law division at Stephensons Solicitors LLP, said younger people are likely to be influenced by the culture of celebrities.

Details of prenups for modern couples such as Beyonce and Jay Z, as well as Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, are widely distributed online.

Kanye West & # 39; s number Gold Digger immortalized the text: & # 39; Holla, we want prenup! We want prenup! & # 39; – although ironically, when he married Kim Kardashian in 2014, their agreement was that he would pay her $ 1 million a year for 10 years if the marriage didn't work. At the time, Kim was worth $ 40 million, but today that capital stands at a huge $ 370 million.

According to Amanda, openness has led to a generation that accepts much more to talk about contracts, assets and assets with their other half.

& # 39; The stigma of consulting a lawyer before faltering has long since disappeared. Generation Z grew up under the influence of celebrity culture and has a realistic approach to marriage or civil partnerships. & # 39;

& # 39; It is encouraging that young people, especially women, feel comfortable talking about money and want to protect their assets, & # 39; Amanda added.

& # 39; If a relationship ends and 42 percent now, a prenup can protect you and your partner against greater financial and emotional stress. If they are well prepared, they will be given considerable weight in court and, although they are not an automatically binding legal document, they can help reduce disputes, & Amanda added.

Without a prior notice, the lawyer noted that individuals are at risk & # 39; everything & # 39; to divide evenly in the middle.

& # 39; The decision to sign up for this type of agreement is a very personal decision that you have to make as a couple. I would always recommend instructing a specialist family law lawyer with experience in this area and finalizing your agreement well before your ceremony, & she said.
