Thinking of a Business with Your Significant Other?

Then take a look at 'Co-preneurs' brave work-life challenges from The Boston Globe.

I have to say this so true:

"Staying married is hard enough these days. Could you stay in business with your spouse, too? In a new twist on the traditional mom and pop shop, millions of couples are running businesses together, from bakeries to software consulting, and clothing lines. 'Co-preneurs' prize the intense togetherness that others might find suffocating, and the idea of finding a business partner they can fully trust."
While the article concentrates more on the relationship and business aspects, I still think anyone thinking along these lines needs to first consider one of the following legal documents: pre-nuptial agreement, post-nuptial agreement or a cohabitation agreement. Which one depends on the particular relationship.

After choosing that agreement, you need to consider what type of business entity you and your significant other will want for the business.

Remember, that this office can help you create all the documents you need if you are in Indiana and thinking of starting a business with your significant other.
