I really like Richard Branson's very sensible and pragmatic view on prenups.

They're not the most romantic document to discuss with your loved one, but as Richard points out, they can play such an important part in keeping relations civil in the event of a marriage breakdown.

A real benefit of having a prenup is that you are discussing and planning matters now, when you're both in a happy place, rather than dealing with matters when you're disgruntled and upset.

You wouldn't do business with someone without a contract, so should you be getting married without one?

It's certainly food for thought..
