In addition, a gift that is made during a wedding can also be treated in a prenup agreement. There is also the question of the whole house. I would like to add this as the 5th question. That is, if the whole house is part of the marital property. I will do the first edition in two parts because these are two distinct features, namely the apartment and woburn Residence, which have been identified as a [special reserved] number and Kilifi House.
