-The Nova Scotia Act allows non-recourse to a conjugal agreement where a term is “unacceptable, unreasonably harsh against a party or fraudulent.” Matrimonial Property Act, R.S.N.S. 1989, Ch. 275, 29. Hi I`m Canadian living in Quebec and married? My partner and I got married in 1988 and we just wondered if we hadn`t signed a prenup, what`s going on?

Both would say the same thing, but apply in their respective countries.
Agreements must be written, signed and certified by the parties. They can deal with a wide range of issues, including ownership or division of ownership, support obligations, issues related to children`s education and “moral education” (but not custody or access to children) and “any other matter.” Legislation prevents spouses from speaking out against provisions of the law that protect each spouse`s marriage rights. So I have 27 people who intend to ask the question in the coming months at my long GF. I`ve already had conversation about a prenup with her and although at first reluctantly she understands. I was hoping that someone here might have already experienced Prenups Ontario, including their effectiveness in ontario courts, and included what. Just let me be clear, I love her, she`s amazing, I don`t think she`d do anything stupid with finance, that she would cause a divorce, or that she wanted a divorce, nor would I think she would fight hard to get me to the cleaners. But let`s be honest, everybody says it before they get married, right? @Henry – No. You can`t change a prenupe unilaterally. In the not-so-distant past, prenups were not legal, as cohabitation without marriage was considered against public order. Today, however, they are legal and, in fact, several provinces have legal provisions codifying their legality. In Ontario, Section 53 of the Family Law Act is the legal authority that allows them to do so.
