The agreements are most popular with people aged 30-45, a survey has found. A group of leading divorce lawyers said that they had seen a rise in requests for the agreements, with nearly 45 per cent having completed seven or more in the past year. Some 13 per cent of lawyers claimed to have completed 16 or more in the past 12 months. Only 4 per cent of the lawyers reported a reduction in the number of inquiries about the agreements. In of Radmacher v Granatino, the Supreme Court ruled for the first time that it was right that pre-nuptial agreements should have decisive or compelling weight; and that it was for the spouse seeking to escape the terms of a nuptial agreement to show why it would be unfair to be held to it.
