In the 18th century betrothed couples not only included arrangements on the size of the matrimonial property in their prenuptial agreements, but also, and in particular, agreements on the inheritance-related consequences of one of their deaths. In a case study Marcel Kremer researches the contents of 18th-century prenuptial agreements of Mennonites for the arrangements made to ensure the welfare of the surviving spouse.
