Prenuptial Agreements are not binding yet but, in some cases, they will carry decisive weight. They are becoming of greater interest and weight within matrimonial proceedings. Prenuptial Agreements are very different from Postnuptial Agreements. Marriage is a binding contract in itself; yet there is such a lack of clarity on what could happen, should it break down, which can be a huge worry for newlyweds. Prenuptial Agreements are binding in most countries in Europe, in the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand but are still not binding here.
