This ruling is crucial for ordinary people, not just the rich. It opens the floodgates.
Many have been waiting for this decision, and I think there will be a wave of people wanting to sign a pre-nuptial agreement now they know it is not just a worthless piece of paper.
It gives people certainty and peace of mind going into their marriage. Couples can agree a pre-nup hoping they will never have to use it, but knowing in a worst case scenario they are protected.
The court has made it clear that pre-nups already signed are enforceable even though people may have agreed to them believing that they were not.
