Prenuptial agreement can include social media clauses in Colorado

When two people enter into a marriage, it is important that both spouses understand the ground rules of the marriage. One of the most common methods of ensuring that both spouses in a marriage understand the ground rules is through the use of a prenuptial agreement. However, with the advent of social media, spouses in Colorado have been including clauses specifically addressing the use of social media.

These special clauses in the prenuptial agreement detail what each spouse is allowed to post on social media. For example, this may make a husband think twice about posting a picture of his wife in a bathing suit to his social media accounts, since it could cost him money if his wife disapproves. If the wife does not approve of a certain picture of her in being posted online, she may demand the husband remove the picture. Some of these social media clauses now being included in prenuptial agreements would impose monetary fines on a husband if he does not remove pictures of which his wife disapproves.

Some of the more common social media clauses would prohibit a husband, for example, from posting pictures of his wife that could personally embarrass her or professionally damage her reputation. Including a social media clause in the prenuptial agreement can help to spell out in detail what is acceptable when posting online. Most of the time, social media clauses do not specify any particular social media site, such as Instagram or Facebook, but it is a provision that covers all social media platforms.

On the other hand, each prenuptial agreement in Colorado or any other state will be different, depending upon each individual set of circumstances. It will also be important to understand how to apply the relevant laws to the particular details of one’s specific case. If a marriage does end in divorce, the prenuptial agreement can make the divorce process more efficient and less expensive.
