- Do you currently own your home?
- Do you own significant assets?
- Do you own your own business or shares of a business?
- Do you have children from a previous relationship?
- Do you have significantly more assets than your soon-to-be spouse?
- Is there a significant age difference between you and your future spouse?
- Is this your second marriage?
- Do you have loved ones that you are taking care of, such as elderly parents or disabled children?
- Do you want to leave property you acquire in the future to your children, rather than your new spouse, in the event of your death?
