A prenuptial agreement makes property division easier

According to a survey of divorce lawyers, prenuptial agreements are on the rise, and more women are requesting them. 60 percent of the lawyers surveyed reported that they have seen an increase in prenuptial agreements within the last three years, and 46 percent have seen more women asking for them.
