    Florida Prenuptial Agreements – What’s Covered

    There was a time in the not too distant past (50’s, 60’s and 70’s) when the mention of a premarital or prenuptial agreement raised an eyebrow or two.  It conjured up visions of celebrity marriages, May- December romances and sugar daddies (not the candy!).
