(You can receive a post-up at any time after the wedding or make changes to your prenup after the wedding, which can turn it into a post-up, Notes Wallack). Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony) is a topic that many couples argue about during divorce proceedings. A prenup can nip this argument in the bud by letting you set the conditions for adding the spouse at the beginning of your marriage. If you or your spouse don`t intend to work (perhaps with the intention of staying home and raising children), assisting spouses is something you should definitely discuss. Otherwise, many prenups renounce the privileges of assisted spouses. There are exceptions to the conditional gift rule that regulates engagement rings. .
