IN TODAY’S COLUMN, Aaron McKenna writes that marriage is a contract and therefore there should be no reason why people who are entering into an agreement should not be allowed to protect their respective assets.

It was announced in October that the Department of Justice will be considering the legal position of prenuptial agreements as part of legal reforms.

At present, prenuptial agreements are not binding in Irish law with settlements at the discretion of judges as part of divorce proceedings.

Today’s poll is: Do you think prenuptial agreements should be legal in Ireland?
