What You Should Know If You Are Considering Marriage During COVID-19 


Marriage During COVID-19The arrival of the Coronavirus has meant that many of life's events are being cancelled, postponed or reimagined. That is certainly the case where weddings are concerned. 

Plans for lavish nuptials with hundreds of guests are on hold. While some couples are hoping to carry through with their plans when social distancing is at an end, others are appling online to get a marriage license – and are getting married virtually in New York. 

Which of the many available options is right for you? Only you and your partner can decide that, but if you give it some thought, you may begin to see the COVID-19 delay as something of a blessing in disguise.

That's because you now have an opportunity to go over all of your wedding plans again. You can make adjustments to that big ceremony that you'll be having as soon as you're able or you may have discovered that your heart's really not into having an over-the-top ceremony.

Even more critical than planning your wedding is planning your marriage. Accordingly, you might choose to reflect on marriage during COVID-19. This provides you and your partner with an opportunity to talk about whether or not you want kids, and when you might want to start a family. Another important topic might include your family's financial future. Will you be combining bank accounts or keeping everything separate?

As you are formulating plans for the future, it makes sense to ask your partner about whether or not it makes sense to have a prenuptial agreement. These agreements are not just for wealthy couples who each bring considerable assets to their union. Frequently, prenups are drawn up for ordinary couples who want to take a loving and proactive approach in the event that their marriage doesn't succeed.

Prenuptial agreements can cover a variety of topics, including ensuring that each of you remains responsible for the debt that you bring to the marriage or that you'll be able to keep your grandmother's Tiffany lamp no matter what. Considerations for children from previous relationships, retirement accounts and real estate also may be included so that every aspect of your financial and personal lives receives the attention that it deserves.
