Definitions for "Prenuptial Agreement"
Also called an ante-nuptial agreement, this is a written contract between two people who are about to marry, setting out their respective ownership of assets, treatment of future earnings, control of the property of each, and potential division if the marriage is later dissolved.
(also called "antenuptial agreement," commonly abbreviated to "prenup") is a contract entered into by two people prior to marriage or civil union. The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for the division of property should the couple divorce and any rights to spousal support during or after the dissolution of marriage. There are two types of prenups: marriage contract for people who are married or about to be married, and cohabitation agreements for unmarried couples. (Critiques charge that it sets one up for divorce by demonstrating a lack of commitment.)
An agreement a couple signs before marrying, in which they set up the terms of property distribution in case they divorce. So it's a premarital agreement.
