How to make sure that your prenuptial agreement is enforceable

29683454_S.jpgDespite the high rate of divorce in the United States, many of us enter into marriage thinking that we're going to beat the odds. This is a good attitude to have, of course. If you felt otherwise, you probably wouldn't be getting married in the first place.
