Of course, sometimes the other party is not on board. I spoke to couples when I knew I would only represent the husband, but he wanted his fiancée to come in and listen to what I had to say about marriage contracts. I make sure the bride understands that I will not represent her, and the purpose of the meeting is to give her the opportunity to ask questions and feel more comfortable if she hires another independent lawyer. A current trend is that couples choose to create a conflict resolution agreement instead of a traditional marriage agreement. A default prenup discusses what can happen financially if the couple separates, while a conflict resolution prenup describes how the couple agrees to resolve conflicts if they ever reach a point where they are considering divorce. .
