More than friends: No prenup for Jennifer Aniston

"Friends" star Jennifer Aniston is getting married to fiancé Justin Theroux in a couple of months. With vows in the future, it might make sense for the celebrity couple to consider relevant legal repercussions of the union. For example, a soon-to-be married couple might consider the benefits of a prenuptial agreement. Without one, property of an unsuccessful marriage will be at the hands of state property division laws. Despite Aniston's significant wealth, reports suggest that the actor has declined an offer to sign a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. This is surprising, as a divorce without a premarital agreement could result in a loss of $150 million for the star, according to sources.

OK! Magazine indicates that the woman is choosing love over money. However, while the decision is very admirable, divorce could create significant financial consequences.

The truth: many marriages do not make it. While no one wants to anticipate the end of a union, it could happen. For this reason, many people utilize legal safeguards, such as a prenuptial agreement, to help ensure that there is some element of control over the property division process in the event of dissolution.

If you are planning your wedding or ending your marriage, legal rights will be inevitably be evoked. However, depending on the state, laws could vary. To learn more about your rights and responsibilities associated with your situation, you may benefit from speaking with a qualified family law attorney in your area. A lawyer can help you assess your rights.
