Is a prenup marriage invalid in the Catholic church?

    I just heard a Catholic priest on the radio says that marriage is not recognized by Holy Mother Church if there is a prenup.

    Here's what I found on Google:

    14. Does the Church have a position on pre-nuptial agreements? | Archdiocese of San Antonio

    The Catholic Church does not have a blanket prohibition against prenuptial agreements. There may be some cases where they are perfectly legitimate. For example, if a widow with adult children marries a widower who also has adult children, a prenuptial agreement can be a legitimate way to preserve the inheritance rights of each spouse’s children to the property of the prior marriage.

    In most cases, however, prenuptial agreements are a very bad idea, and may even call into doubt the validity of the marriage itself.

    Remember, one of the basic elements of a Catholic marriage is indissolubility — that marriage is permanent, and cannot be dissolved. Jesus himself stated about marriage, “what God has joined, let no man separate” (Mt. 19:6). This teaching is very strongly reflected in the Canon Law, the law of the Church. For a marriage to be valid, the couple must both fully understand what indissolubility means and they must fully consent to it. There cannot be any conditions or reservations about the permanency of their marriage.

    Fwiw, it is about human mind in Matt 19. Human mind is whole when male and female sides of a brain are properly balanced.

    I beg your pardon?

    I done thunk brains had left and right sides.

    A man's brain is totally different from a woman's supposed brain.
