More women are asking for prenuptial agreements

When it comes to prenuptial agreements in Colorado, people may picture a wealthy older man desiring to protect his riches from a younger wife. Times are changing, however, and the idea of protecting assets has become appealing to a wider section of society. As women increasingly take on roles of wealth and power at work and at home, their interest in obtaining prenuptial agreements is also on the rise.

According to the Huffington Post, divorce lawyers have noted a 46 percent increase in the number of women asking for prenuptial agreements.  As women are becoming better educated and marrying later, they often possess more assets at the start of the marriage than in the past.

Prenuptial agreements not only protect these women's premarital assets, they can also prevent women from taking on their partner's debt. Additionally, some women are recognizing that while they may not have a lot of money at the start of the marriage, they have the potential to earn more going forward and want to keep those future earnings protected.

In some cases, women who have gotten burned during the breakup of their first marriage are smartly seeking financial protection before walking down the aisle a second time. The number of second marriages is on the rise as Yahoo! Finance reports that one in five people in America has been married more than once. There is much more at stake for women who have built careers, saved for retirement and possibly have children from the prior marriages to take care of. Many of these women are thus entering their second marriage from a more business-like perspective.
