Pre-Nuptial Agreement (Prenup) in Thailand

The vast majority of couples hope that their marriage will usher in a lifetime of shared happiness, but the unfortunate reality is that so many marriages end in divorce.

A prenuptial agreement, in the event of divorce, can be of great help in dividing the marital property. Not having a properly constructed prenuptial agreement almost invariably leads to unseemly squabbles about the division of property, and this often leads to hostility, with serious effects on any children born in the marriage.
