When two people have agreed to get married then it means that you both agreed to share their life together, share their future together and share their assets together. If you are not comfortable sharing your assets to your soon to be partner then you have the option of drafting a prenuptial contract.

2. It could be because one or both parties moved in to a different state than where they originally filed their prenuptial contract.
