This episode on the enforceability of Ontario marriage contracts (called “pre-nups” in the United States) was recorded live at intimate and interactive discussion of family law issues. This episode contains critical information for anyone who may need a marriage contract or cohabitation agreement: how to make that contract enforceable. It goes over the basic rules for making a marriage contract. John Schuman also describes some of the common reasons why judges refuse to enforce marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements. This episode should be mandatory listening for people considering a marriage contract or cohabitation agreement and people who know someone who should have such a contract.
