Floridians say "I do" to prenups
As Florida's divorce rate ticks to a new low, half of U.S. adults say they're open to signing a prenup.
The big picture: 50% of U.S. adults said they at least somewhat supported the use of prenups, but only about 1 in 5 married couples has a prenuptial agreement, per a Harris Poll research conducted in September for Axios.
- That's up from last year — when Harris Poll found that 42% of polled adults support the use of prenups.
- And 66% of people on the dating app The League who responded to a question about prenups said they're open to signing one.
Between the lines: Younger generations, in particular, are embracing prenups, according to the Harris Poll.
- Around 40% of Gen Z respondents who are engaged or have been married said they entered a prenup. Meanwhile, 47% of millennial respondents who are engaged or have been married said they entered a prenup.
- Americans are also getting hitched later in life. And they often have individual assets — and debt — to consider before marrying.
