The World Cup & Prenuptial Agreements

The world is in the middle of the every four year fervor that is caused by the World Cup. This week I encountered a whole new result of the elation and joy that goes with watching your favorite soccer team play. A young couple came to me this week after having met at a bar watching World Cup games. Apparently, in the midst of all the chaos, they had found each other and decided they were in love. Although their courtship has been short, they seem bound and determined to get married and have already apparently decided when and where they want it to happen: July 13, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro (the World Cup Final location). I guess it's a particularly fitting place for them being that their relationship revolves so heavily around soccer.

So they came to me because, wisely in my opinion, they have decided to get a prenuptial agreement before going on their upcoming journey. While we joked about adding provisions regarding favorite soccer teams (he loves Chelsea, she's an Arsenal fan), they are on the clock to get the agreement finished and finalized before the leave for Brazil. As a rule of thumb, I prefer to have all prenuptial agreements executed at least two weeks before the wedding, which means a quick turnaround for these two. I'm spending this day (when there's no World Cup games) getting everything together so these soccer loving kids can have their dream wedding.

Usually it is better to plan out your prenuptial agreement far in advance of your wedding, but sometimes the World Cup intervenes and you need to get it all done and get on that plane...
