Planning for the contingency that a marriage may end in divorce is not romantic, but if the statisticians are correct, approximately 50% of all present marriages will end that way. The number of second marriages ending in divorce is an even higher percentage. If you were entering into any other business enterprise with a failure rate that high, you would certainly want to protect yourself.
Marriage and divorce are the most important financial transaction in anyone’s lifetime. A contemporary man or woman needs to be informed about both of them. Divorce is the only business deal that puts everything that a couple owns or earns on the table.
