Did you know that disagreements over finances are one of the leading causes of divorce and the breakup of long-term relationships? Even if you’re still in the honeymoon phase of a relationship (real or figurative) where you think everything will be perfect forever it’s important to plan for the future — not because you expect your relationship to end, but because you want to make it stronger.

When you create a premarital or cohabitation agreement, you’re forced to have a thorough discussion about finances and handling money with your partner. Some of these discussions will be uncomfortable, and you will almost certainly find that you disagree about at least one important issue. That’s exactly what you want. Having these discussions now when you’re in the shared mindset of getting on the same page is far better than ignoring them until it turns into a point of conflict and resentment.

Of course, if everything doesn’t go as planned, your premarital agreement or cohabitation agreement will provide you with protection at the end of your relationship. This is more important than ever in a time where people are marrying only after completing advanced degrees, working for several years, buying a home, and building up substantial investment savings.
