I’ve been hearing a lot of stories about prenups — a very wealthy couple in Chicago is divorcing and she is contesting what seems like a horrible prenup. She should have known better, as she was a “money pro.” You must have read about this! But your books says “signing under duress” is not a way to invalidate a prenup.
Savage Says: I’ll let Gemma respond re the legalities — but this is a HEADLINE issue that should let you know how important it is to start work on a prenup well in advance of the wedding, understand what you want and might one day NEED — and NEVER sign off just because the wedding is planned for the next few days. This is the oldest trick in the book — and this woman fell for it!
