What about Gay and/or Lesbian marriages?
Gay and lesbian marriages are not legal or recognized in the state of Indiana. Therefore, what happens if a same sex couple marries in a state where same sex marriages are legal and then one or both of them move to the state of Indiana? A premarital agreement can protect each person’s property rights in this particular case. In contracts, each party must give up something called “consideration” to make the contract binding. A properly drafted same sex marriage agreement can perhaps help clarify these property matters in case of a breakup of the relationship in Indiana, where the marriage is not recognized in the first place.
