Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston Announce Engagement

By Leeds Brown Law | July 27, 2010

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston announced their engagement earlier this week. Instead of telling Bristol’s mother, former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin, the couple sat down with gossip magazine US Weekly.  The couple is on the magazine’s cover, holding their 18-month-old son Tripp and explaining how they got back together after the most famous teenage breakup ever.  After getting engaged during her mother’s 2008 vice-presidential campaign, the couple split shortly after their son’s birth.  The split turned into a tabloid frenzie, with Johnston bad mouthing the Palin family on the Tyra Banks Show and to Vanity Fair magazine, posing for Playgirl, and complaining the Palins were shutting him out of Tripp’s life, and with Bristol Palin telling Harper’s Bazaar that Johnston is a stranger to her, as well as ensuing a bitter custody battle.  Sarah Palin even chimed in, calling Johnston a fame seeker and “Ricky Hollywood.”  Despite the tumultuous roller coaster, the couple has decided to try their luck at marriage.  Full Article

Although it has not been confirmed whether Palin and Johnston will enter into a prenuptial agreement, many speculate the former governor will urge her daughter to enter into such an agreement, given the history between the young couple.  A prenuptial agreement is a contract between two people about to wed that spells out how assets will be distributed in the event of divorce or death.  It is important to consult with an attorney if you wish to draw up a prenuptial agreement. It is vital to consult with an attorney in the event you are given a prenuptial agreement.  Often times, the agreement is filled with legal jargon that is difficult to understand, and the non-initiating spouse may not fully understand what he or she is signing.  Like all contracts, a prenuptial agreement is fully enforceable.  However, the agreement may be declared invalid if signed under duress, coercion, or undue influence.
