Good morning. A pre-nup is always a good idea, if you both want to protect things which you are coming into the marriage with and/or want to keep separate, during the marriage. The pre-nup needs to be signed and executed before you actually get married. It is not uncommon to ask for things which were acquired prior to the marriage to remain separate ( even though they typically are unless something changes) and for each party to be liable for their own debts which they acquire during the marriage, as well. Also, if you have your coaching business, you want to make sure that he will not have any right or claim in it, even if he contributes to the business in someway, which could give him a possible claim. You can make sure it stays solely in your name and that he acknowledges this. Once the pre-nup is executed, you both should be advised by an attorney, to make sure you understand the rights you are possible giving up and just make sure it is done prior to getting married.
