Postnuptials are the latest fashion

Want to be at the cutting edge in your marriage? If so, you need a postnuptial agreement, says my That's Men for You column in today's Irish Times. Forget the prenup - the postnuptial agreement is already coming down the tracks at us from California as an indispensable accessory, especially if you are in your second marriage. The article is part of The Irish Times' premium content so I can't reproduce it here. The postnuptial contract is made after you marry and when all is still rosy in the garden. In the contract, the couple work out issues concerning assets and child custody should they break up. May sound daft but may also have some merits in the case of second marriages where the couple wants to protect the rights of the children of the first marriage. Disadvantage? You might get kicked out of bed for suggesting a postnup as happened to the husband of Eva Longoria's (above right) character in Desperate Housewives.
