Some Florida couples decide to make decisions about their marriages before they begin. Some may choose to legally bind the decisions in a prenuptial agreement. Not only do prenuptial agreements allow couples to make financial decisions before a marriage begins, but some agreements also include stipulations about sexual and romantic decisions, family boundaries, and financial responsibility decisions while married.

Some celebrity couples have made specific clauses in their prenuptial agreements that involve more than their finances. Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are reportedly worth $74.5 billion and reportedly agreed on a romantic clause prior to their marriage. They agreed to one date a week and 100 minutes of alone time outside of their home and work. Nicole Kidman was aware of her husband's struggle with alcohol and drugs prior to their marriage. Reportedly, Keith Urban will receive $600,000 for every year that he does not excessively indulge in either vice.

It is rumored that couples like Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have infidelity clauses within their agreements. Justin and Jessica are reportedly worth $248 million, allegedly Biel will receive $500,000 if Justin is unfaithful. Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z reportedly have clauses for Beyoncé to receive $5 million for every child they have in their marriage. In addition, they have reportedly updated their prenuptial agreement with a post-nuptial agreement to establish trust funds and custody agreements in the event of a separation.

While some skeptics may feel that prenuptial agreements are unromantic and an indication that a couple may not have faith in the longevity of their relationship, many couples find them useful to legally decide sensitive financial discussions prior to marriage. Family law attorneys in Florida can advise couples of considerations to be included in an agreement. In addition, attorneys can facilitate discussions between a couple with significant wealth or other concerns that may be difficult to discuss on their own.
