According to a UK based wedding website, UK couples usually date for 4.9 years before getting married. The divorce rate in the UK is at its lowest in 50 years. According to therapists, it could be because couples are now getting married after “knowing their partner and relationship better than before”. Personally, I feel that having a prenuptial agreement drawn up could play a part in making marriages last as well. From time to time, I encounter potential clients who ask me for a prenuptial agreement Singapore template.

Are prenuptial agreements enforceable in Singapore?
Under Section 112 of the Women’s Charter, “any agreement between the parties with respect to the ownership and division of the matrimonial assets made in contemplation of divorce” will be considered by the Court when the Court considers the issue on the division of assets. A prenuptial agreement, if drafted correctly, constitutes that “agreement”.
The next question then is whether you should prepare your own prenuptial agreement based on a “prenuptial agreement Singapore template”. The answer is a simple no.
If you are preparing a prenuptial agreement, you should be as clear as you can and be specific. You do not want to have an agreement which is so vague (or unclear). This may result in the Court not assigning any weight to the prenuptial agreement.
Instead of preparing a prenuptial agreement based on a prenuptial agreement Singapore template, you should get a lawyer to assist you. We charge S$550 net for a simple prenuptial agreement.
