Computers and social networking websites play an integral role in the way that people across the state of Michigan and around the entire country communicate and interact. In fact, an increasing number of serious relationships and marriages are thanks to couples meeting and connecting online. The unfortunate flipside to the significance of social media in people’s everyday lives is that online activity can also factor into divorce proceedings.
Much like a standard prenuptial agreement, a social media prenuptial agreement accounts for the actions and conduct of spouses confronted by divorce. A social media prenup can identify inappropriate behavior and set terms for when and how such behavior may be penalized. Monetary compensation may be awarded to a spouse who is wronged under the terms of the social media prenup, and that compensation may be determined by the wealth of the spouse that committed the contractual violation.
