Pre-nups come to Slovakia?

THERE have been strong reactions to a proposal by MPs Jirka Malchárek and Jozef Heriban to introduce pre-nuptial agreements to Slovakia, according to the Hospodárske noviny business daily.

The two MPs want the new Civil Code to include provision giving couples the choice of signing a pre-nuptial agreement organizing their assets in case of a divorce.

Heriban argues that giving people this choice would make sense as 40 percent of marriages end in divorce.

"People getting married have no opportunity to administer their assets”, said Heriban.
