A Same Sex Pre-Nuptial Agreement is a contract entered into by a couple prior to their marriage and determines who will get what in case their marriage breaks down. The agreement can be drafted with the flexibility to meet each individual set of circumstances. Some think that entering into such an agreement is unromantic or might undermine the relationship, but a properly drafted, the straightforward agreement can protect both parties and can actually prevent future conflict.
