When people get married, they are doing so under the assumption that it will last forever. This is why many decide not to set up a prenuptial agreement. Unfortunately, not having one can sometimes lead to a very difficult and contentious divorce. If there is one in place, then the terms of it are used to let everyone know how to divide the assets.
