Unlike all other contract laws, no consideration is necessary, although a minority of courts denounce marriage itself in return. Through a prenup, a spouse can completely waive property rights, support or inheritance, as well as the voting share, and can get nothing for it. The choice of legal provisions is crucial in the prenups. Contracting parties may decide that the law of the state in which they are married governs both the interpretation of the agreement and the division of property at the time of divorce. In the absence of a legal choice clause, it is the law of the place where the parties divorce, not the law of the state in which they were married, that decides matters of ownership and support. In the United States, marital agreements are recognized in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and are enforceable if prepared in accordance with state and state requirements. It has been reported that the demand for marriage contracts in the United States has increased in recent years, especially for millennial couples.     In a 2016 survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), member lawyers reported that the total number of clients seeking premarital marriage arrangements has increased in recent years, particularly with the Millennial generation, with the greatest interest in protecting capital gains in the case of separate ownership, inheritance and shared ownership.  Although there are no drawbacks to a marriage agreement by law, it is still a social stigma in India and this creates a negative impression in people`s minds because they think the couple has already thought that their marriage will not last.
Marital agreement can cause pain between the conjugal relationship of man and woman, if only one spouse insists, since The Indians regard marriage as above the materialistic aspect of life. In India, since marriage is not considered a contract, it is very rare that you see or hear a couple get a pre-nup. However, in the event of divorce or separation, both spouses fight with the hearings of their case in court, lay charges, blame the other party, so that the person can pay less money than support, and that is where the importance of a marriage agreement comes into play. Marital agreements may restrict the ownership and support rights of the parties, but also guarantee the right of one of the parties to seek or obtain assistance up to a certain limit.
