For some, starting a relationship or marriage with a contract can generate a sense of mistrust
However, laying out that particulars of finances and assets upon the end of a union (divorce) can be important. The reality is that marriage is not a fairy tale and therefore couples need to be prepared and protected in case of an untimely end of their marriage.
