According to state law, they can enter into a post-marital contract, which is signed after marriage. The basic elements of a post-day proclamation are the same as those of a marriage, although post-euptic agreements are more difficult to enforce depending on the state and some states require consideration. Consideration is something of value that one party gives to the other to get them to sign the agreement. These can be cash, real estate, shares or other assets. Although no one wants to think about divorce before they even get married, prenutial agreements (or prenutial arrangements) are intended to set certain conditions in case the marriage ends. For example, a person with an established family business may try to protect this property from the other party in the event of a divorce. .
