婚前协议(prenuptial agreement),通常的英文缩写为prenup或prenupt,指有意成婚或者达成合作的人在结婚、民事结合(即同性结婚)或者正式注册之前签署的一份协议。

A prenuptial agreement or premarital agreement, commonly abbreviated to prenup or prenupt, is a contract entered into prior to marriage, civil unio or any other agreement prior to the main agreement by the people intending to marry or contract with each other.
