A Warwickshire solicitor is advising that pre-nuptial agreements are a real expression of love and not at all unromantic as starry-eyed lovers look to propose on Valentine’s Day.

Sophia Mellor, Partner at Blythe Liggins Solicitors in Leamington Spa, is gearing up to help clients who are intending to propose, or think their beloved will pop the question to them on February 14.

Sophia said: “Pre-nuptial agreements are not at all unromantic. It is, after all, the expression of love to another and that the marriage is not being entered into for financial reasons.”

A pre-nuptial agreement is an agreement made by a couple before they marry to outline intended ownership of respective assets if the marriage should end in divorce.

In some cases, a pre-nuptial agreement would be advisable if, for example, there are pre-marital assets, inheritances or children from a previous relationship who need to be protected.

Sophia added: “From my experience, representing people for pre-nuptial agreements, living together agreements and post-nuptial agreements, is nothing but positive.
“We should never forget that marriage should be for love, not for money.”

Sophia is urging those intending to propose, or those who have been proposed to, to consult with a specialist family law solicitor for advice.

“A specialist family law solicitor will enable you to make an informed decision as to whether a prenuptial agreement is suitable for you,” she added.

“Consulting with a family law solicitor in these moments of pure joy can be invaluable in helping people to organise themselves financially, while committing to a long and happy relationship or marriage.”
