Having trouble in your marriage? This book is for you. Tom Gardiner, a Chicago lawyer, explains how post-nuptial agreements can address marital problems effectively. Unlike counseling that often is no more than a temporary fix, this book talks about agreements that will result in long-term change.
If your spouse drinks too much, for instance, you both agree in a legally binding document about the changes that need to occur - and the consequences if they don't. There is another huge advantage to post-nups. If the behavior is not changed and divorce is triggered, the terms are set when the parties both seek to save the marriage - not when they're going through an acrimonious break-up. These terms are usually reasonable and fair - who gets the kids and when, a fair amount of alimony for a fair term, division of the property - all because the spouses are seeking a solution at the time.
This book covers all of the human frailties that can cause problems in a marriage: financial problems, drinking, drug use, cheating, stepchildren, in-law problems, inheritance, religious issues, and so on. It is a book not just for couples but also for therapists, religious leaders, and others who seek to make marriages stronger and divorces civilized and fair.
The book is very informative on marriage and marriage law. It provides clear explanations and gives examples to support the ideas.
