What are unmarried parents' rights for child custody?

Unlike the baby boom generation that came before them, parents raising children in the 21st century are far more likely to be unmarried than their parents were. In fact, the number of unmarried parents has doubled since 1968, from 13% to 32% in 2017. About 15 million children live with a single mother, but five million live with cohabitating unmarried parents.

A prenup may be most important for your second marriage

If you are preparing to enter your second marriage, there may be valid reasons to consider getting a prenuptial agreement, even if you did not get a prenup before your first marriage. Some people are able to get away without a prenup when they are young, have no children and have few assets to worry about. However, your life has probably changed over the years.
