The perception towards marriage in today's world is changing from what it used to be. Gone are the days of needless compromise to keep a marriage from falling. People today are much more worried about their own individual identity over the false image of having a stable relationship where the scenes behind the curtain show a very different picture.
With divorce statistics worldwide on an increasing trend, it is becoming important to address the parties' situation after the divorce. Prenuptial agreements worldwide are becoming more common, as newer generations get divorced at higher rates than their previous ones
This study looks into the concept of prenuptial agreements all around the world on different continents. It also studies various religions and safeguards the parties to marriage after it ends, long before these concepts came into being. The study then moves into the Indian perspective and looks into the viability of having prenuptial agreements enforceable by Indian courts.
