A few hours before their marriage, John DeLorean plaintiff) presented Christina DeLorean (defendant) with an antenuptial (or prenuptial) agreement. The agreement, which was subject to the laws of California, stipulated that property or income acquired by each party before and after the marriage would remain under the ownership of that party in the event of a divorce. The agreement stated that John was the owner of substantial property interests and had reasonable prospects for making significant earnings. No other description of John’s assets was provided. Christina signed the agreement despite the input of an attorney who advised her against it. Later, Christina filed for and obtained a divorce in California. John filed for divorce in New Jersey. The California divorce was declared invalid because Christina had not met the state’s residency requirement. John sought to enforce the antenuptial agreement in New Jersey Superior Court.
