Can addressing divorce before marriage get too extreme?

When individuals plan to get married, there are often many aspects that need to be taken into consideration. From wedding venue to the dress to photographers, the decisions may seem overwhelming. Of course, some New York residents may even feel the need to use the time before their wedding to plan for the possibility of divorce.

Though this type of planning is not necessarily unheard of and can be quite sensible in certain respects, some people may take their planning overboard. It was recently reported that one couple contacted a wedding photographer about potentially taking photos on their big day. However, the couple had an unusual request: a refund in case of divorce. Their reasoning behind the request was that they would no longer need the wedding photos if they got divorced.

Of course, many people are questioning whether the request was real or simply a practical joke. Indeed, numerous individuals have posted their own over-the-top requests to highlight the ridiculous nature of wanting an in-case-of-divorce refund for photographs. The possibility does exist, however, that the couple has a genuine desire to know whether such a refund could be put in place.

Though most people do not want to plan to such an extreme, considering the idea of divorce before marriage can have benefits. For instance, New York residents may wish to look into creating a prenuptial agreement in order to address certain issues that could arise should their marriages not work out. Family law attorneys can help parties interested in taking such action address the applicable topics.
