George Clooney finally ties the knot. Is there a prenup?

A Hollywood heartthrob and notorious bachelor who pledged never to get married recently said “I do.” George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin in a private ceremony in Italy over the weekend. The marriage consummated months of speculation about what the wedding would be like (since it was kept about as secret as CIA operative code names) and what the bride and groom would be wearing when they exchanged vows.

According to an ABC News.com report, the bride wore a French lace gown made by Oscar de la Renta and the groom wore a custom Giorgio Armani tuxedo. The wedding had a number of A-list attendees, including Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Anna Wintour. 

People magazine recently released an issue with specially selected pictures from the wedding.

Although they may not be branded as a new power couple, it would be interesting to know whether Clooney and Alamuddin signed a prenuptial agreement. Traditionally, such an agreement would be a contract between couples that detail how the assets may be dissolved in the event of a divorce. Nowadays, prenups are being used to set expectations on how decisions will be made or how penalties may be established for infidelity.

In some of our prior posts, we have highlighted how some prenups contain social media restrictions because of how information (especially false statements) can be broadcast to the masses through the push of a button.

Regardless, prenuptial agreements can help people make and understand boundaries, alleviate the anger and resentment that comes about when couples fight during a divorce.
