About drafting prenuptial agreements published Drafting a Prenup which covers the process of drafting a prenuptial agreement. The article certainly contains some inconvenient truths for lawyers and their potential clients such as in the following paragraph:

Whether you call it a "prenuptial," "premarital" or "antenuptial" agreement, it's the same thing: an agreement in which a couple sets out the rules that will govern their property, debts, income and expenses. Lawyers love to talk about prenuptial agreements. They keep talking themselves into believing that, eventually, nearly all couples who marry - or at least who remarry after a divorce - will sign one (and pay them a big fee). That's unlikely.
That paragraph has probably more truth than articles promoting prenuptial agreements such as Prenups for the people. On the other hand, that article has a lot of sense even if it is not followed by its readers. In the words of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.: So it goes.
