WATCH: Valentine’s Day Proposal the Second Time Around? Don’t Forget A Prenup!

Yes, Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year. But it’s always critical to consider what your financial union will look like! Especially for those of us who have been married before.

One of the most popular days of the year to propose is Valentine’s Day.

For those of us who have been married once already, there may be anticipated wedding jitters associated with tying the knot for the “second time around.” And while you are madly in love, you also must remember that marriage is a financial partnership that comes with legal implications.

But a prenup can build certainty and give you a roadmap.

Watch this video for more tips on why everyone needs a prenup.
