Wheat Ridge Premarital Agreements: What are Social Media Prenups?

On Behalf of | Jul 11, 2017 | Divorce |


I recently read an article about ‘celebrity’ Rob Kardashian and allegations of revenge porn that brought up a conversation about social media prenups. So, let’s look at what a social media prenup is and how it differs from the usual prenuptial agreement. Remember, an experienced Wheat Ridge Divorce and Family Law Attorney can lead you through all the different premarital agreement options and topics in order to make sure your prenups protects you fully. Prenuptial agreements are also called antenuptial agreements and premarital agreements.

What is a Prenuptial Agreement or Antenuptial Agreement in Jefferson County and How Does Social Media Fit In?

A Jefferson County prenuptial agreement is basically a document that outlines how specified things are to be handled in the event of a divorce or even death. The couple can decide which elements to include in their premarital agreement, commonly including:

  • Alimony
  • Finances
  • Wills
  • Inheritance
  • Property

It is basically a way for couples to plan ahead and have a sense of peace about certain issues, instead of worrying about the unknown future disposition of assets. While some think a prenup is unromantic, it often has positive effects on a marriage, knowing that the property issues addressed in the prenuptial will not be points of contention for the couple at any point.

The Social Media Prenup: Can Social Media Be a Condition Covered in a Wheat Ridge Premarital Agreement?

Honestly, any asset, element, or condition of a marriage can be included in a Wheat Ridge prenuptial agreement. With the increase in social media usage, it is probably a good idea to have a discussion about how social media will or will not play a role in the marriage and what is acceptable social media behavior regarding the relationship. Generally, the social media clause includes an agreement not to post any nude, embarrassing, or professionally damaging content on a social media platform. This can protect your online reputation, which now-a-days, tends to be the most important reputation and the first place people will look for information.
