It is not uncommon for the parent who decides to forgo their career to stay home and raise their family to end up getting shortchanged in the situation. When there is no prenuptial agreement in place, women can still take measures to protect their assets so they can retain some kind of financial stability in the event of divorce with a post-nuptial agreement, states The Fiscal Times.
