WVC 48 - 1 - 203
§48-1-203. Antenuptial or prenuptial agreement defined.
"Antenuptial agreement" or "prenuptial agreement" means an
agreement between a man and woman before marriage, but in
contemplation and generally in consideration of marriage, by which
the property rights and interests of the prospective husband and
wife, or both of them, are determined, or where property is secured
to either or both of them, to their separate estate, or to their
children or other persons. An antenuptial agreement may include
provisions that define the respective property rights of the
parties during the marriage, or upon the death of either or both of
the parties. The agreement may provide for the disposition of
marital property upon an annulment of the marriage or a divorce or
separation of the parties. A prenuptial agreement is void if at
the time it is made either of the parties is a minor.
