Young couples in Colorado with few assets may still want a prenup

Young couples in Colorado planning their weddings may be wrapped up in choosing a venue, a caterer, flowers, the perfect dress and all the other wedding details. What they may not be so wrapped up in, however, is executing a prenuptial agreement.

However, no one can predict the future, so it is best to be prepared with a prenup.
