UK Judge Rules Prenuptial Agreement Invalid Due To Duress

A judge has ruled that a prenuptial agreement signed by a bride three days before her wedding, was done so under duress reports The Courier Mail.

The bride told the court her husband to be told her the wedding would be off if she didn’t sign the prenup and so she felt obliged to do so. The agreement said each spouse would retain their own assets if they separated. At the time the wife only had a car, which has since been sold to pay for the family’s care, while the husband had property and a substantial amount of money.

The court heard the husband now has a $330,000 property, the former matrimonial home worth $725,000 and a business valued at $283,722.
