Aaron Weems was quoted in the Phillymag.com article “Just So You Know, Social Media Clauses in Prenups Are Now Becoming a Thing.”

Weems says that the main point of laying out these sanctions and penalties is preventative: If there is a legal document you can refer to that outlines what cannot be posted and what happens if it is posted, the chances of a scorned ex going through with a vindictive post will greatly reduce. “It’s all about the financial repercussions,” Weems says. “You hit them in their wallet.”

“Anytime or any way that information can be disseminated, you can protect yourself against it,” he says. And while according to Weems, Philadelphia couples haven’t started signing up for this the way they are in, say, California or even New York, it is becoming common enough practice that he now routinely brings it up along with all of the other aforementioned prenup topics. “Even if they don’t add it to their agreement, they find that the conversation, at least, is worthwhile.”
