Death by Prenuptial Agreements

I am horrified to see this tragedy. In Australia, Terrance John Jackson has just been convicted of murdering his partner, Marita Ameli Brown, because she sought legal advice about getting a prenuptial agreement.

Divorce can be a really ugly event. Unfortunately, this sort of thing does happen during a bitter divorce. However, I have never heard of such a case involving a prenup before. I can’t even begin to imagine what must have gone through Jackson’s mind.

Negotiating a prenuptial agreement, while serious business, should not be viewed as a negative event. It involves a couple discussing what expectations they have of each other, especially regarding financial matters. Dealing with money is an important part of a relationship, and one that is going to need to be dealt with sooner or later, and preferably sooner.

My condolences to Marita Brown and her family and friends.
