Couples Now Demanding 'Social Media Prenups'
A top US attorney says a third of her clients are now asking for social media clauses in prenuptial agreements.
Ann-Margaret Carrozza specialises in estate planning in New York and says each breach of an agreed social media rule can result in a fine of up to $50,000 (£29,700)
She said a typical clause will state couples cannot post nude photos, embarrassing photos or anything that is likely to harm a spouse's professional reputation.
She told ABC News: "It's a huge issue because we all know this stuff, once it's out there, you can't shake it.
"It can be humiliating. It can be painful. It's really no joke, and I expect this clause to become much more important."
She said the rules were less about making money, and instead to set boundaries in a relationship.
"The damage is psychological, in the case of humiliating posts and tweets and pictures out there, and it's economic because my career prospects are harmed."
Ms Carrozza is a former New York state assembly politician - and currently practises in Manhattan.
The clauses written by her state that for a typical client, a fine of around $50,000 would apply to each post or photograph published online.
A recent survey found 80% of US divorce attorneys say social networking issues in divorce proceedings are on the rise.
