hopes to avoid a financial dispute incident to a divorce and, in many instances, to avoid having to share assets, property, or money with the person he or she is divorcing.
The Third DCA stated that while it is generally true that a waiver is the intentional relinquishment of known rights, the fact that a waiver of rights in an antenuptial agreement
does not contain a statutory disclosure requirement persuaded the court to conclude that such a waiver also includes the waiver of unknown rights.

that is unfair and inequitable if the parties entered into it voluntarily with the benefit of full and fair disclosure and in the absence of fraud, duress, overreaching, or coercion.
