Raising the Bar: Prenups

July 21, 2019

People have blamed millennials for ruining things like golf, homeownership, department stores, and even the generosity of tipping–now, marriage is on the list. But, are they actually ruining the “romantic partnership?”

In 2018, The New York Times reported that prenuptial agreements have had a steady incline in recent years because of millennials. Lawyers claim that there was a 62% rise in prenups from 2013 to 2016. This generation has decided to ditch the early ceremony until they reach their 30’s, thus allowing a greater amount of savings to be involved when signing into a partnership. Could another possible factor be that one-third of millennials were raised in a single-parent or divorced-parent home? 

Raising the Bar hosts Jason Clark, President of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association and Attorney Adeola Adejobi are joined by Morgan Fraser Mouchette, Matrimonial & Family Law Associate at Blank Rome, and Dilpreet RaiPartner of Hennessey & Bienstock, LLP to discuss prenups.

Aired Sunday, July 21st, 2019.
