A prenuptial agreement is an option that one should consider before getting married. The prenuptial agreement will allow the parties to keep their property separate. Normally, in a marriage the couple must split the community property 50/50. This is a way to protect what you own so that you don't lose it in a divorce. The laws of California governing the division of property in a divorce use the community property laws. If you would like to be exempt from this law you would need to create a prenuptial agreement.
