We fully appreciate that when planning a wedding, it is not very romantic to think of the possibility of the marriage ending in divorce. In spite of this, in some cases because of previous bitter experience, and in other because of a mature desire to minimise expense and distress for those involved (which may then include children) couples are now frequently making these agreements. The idea is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. These agreements cannot bind the English courts but are seen as highly persuasive.
In order to remain as effective as possible, prenups need to be reviewed on a regular basis (usually every three to five years) and when there are major changes of circumstances, such as the arrival of children. Even if couples have never entered into a prenup, they may wish for there to be more certainty about what would happen, for the sake of their children, and a postnuptial agreement can be made to deal with that.
