Anne Freeman interviewed for Cheddar on “What Millennials Need to be Thinking About When Writing Up a Prenup”

December 2018

By Samantha Errico and Kate Gill

Millennials have been dubbed the “entitlement generation”; they may also be the prenup generation.

According to Anne Cochran Freeman, a divorce lawyer and partner at Sideman & Bancroft, that “entitlement” translates to a desire for protection ー which may have contributed to a rise in prenuptial agreements by a factor of five over the last 20 years.

She said an early entrepreneurial spirit among many in the millennial generation also contributes to this trend. Entrepreneurs who dream up inventions or business plans before marriage may want to protect their ownership of those ideas after marriage.
