Another celebrity couple have tied the knot in California, but this time around we're seeing smart choices with the bride and groom signing a prenuptial agreement before their wedding day. The New York Post reports that Edmonton Oiler star Mike Comrie and former Disney Channel star Hillary Duff established a pre-marital agreement to protect their assets. In the case of Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, it seems like they both have a very good reason to do this. Mike Comrie's family reportedly owns the furniture and appliance retailer The Brick, which is worth $500 million. Hillary Duff has also made a lot of money as the star of Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire. She has also brought in a lot of money and fame through acting gigs, pop albums and a signature fragrance line.

Some people may criticize prenuptial agreements because they're seen as unromantic by setting up an expectation for divorce. However, many Texas family law attorneys encourage couples to consider prenup before getting married, especially when one or both parties has a great deal of money that they would like to protect in the case of a divorce. In addition to protecting assets and separate property, FindLaw states that a prenuptial agreement can also be beneficial in that it can clarify special agreements within a marriage and can establish procedures and ground rules for deciding future matters.

In Houston, there are many family law attorneys that can help if you have any questions about the process of creating a prenuptial agreement. If you decide that a prenuptial agreement is best for you, it's a good idea to have skilled Texas family law attorneys, preferably one on each side, draft an agreement.
