            disclosure of the property or financial obligations of
            the other party;
                (ii)  did not voluntarily and expressly waive, in
            writing, any right to disclosure of the property or
            financial obligations of the other party beyond the
            disclosure provided; and
                (iii)  did not have an adequate knowledge of the
            property or financial obligations of the other party.
        (b)  Definition.--As used in this section, the term
     "premarital agreement" means an agreement between prospective
     spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective
     upon marriage.
