The article notes that the goal of the UPMAA has not been realized due, in part, to seemingly inconsistent provisions and the difficult policy considerations for contracts between spouses. Soshnick highlights a history of post-nuptial agreements in Indiana and suggested that some statutory guidance, not necessarily the UPMAA, was necessary
