Should a Christian enter into pre-nuptial agreements before a first marriage?



By Dennis Franck

Pre-nuptial agreements have arisen in the past several years because of the tremendously high rate of divorce, and because many people want to protect what is/was theirs before entering into a marriage agreement. The divorce rate is now...

  • 43 percent of first marriages divorce 1
  • 60 percent of remarriages with children divorce 1
  • 65 percent of remarriages with children from a prior marriage divorce 1
  • 65 percent of simple stepfamilies (1 partner with a child) divorce 2
  • 70 percent of complex stepfamilies (both partners have children) divorce 2

2 In her book For Better or For Worse: Divorce Reconsidered, Dr. Hetherington specifies the divorce rate for stepcouples to be “50 percent higher in remarriages with stepchildren” Specifically, then, the divorce rate is 65-70%. (p. 178).
