The man behind a new lovers' legal service has denied he is trying to mislead anyone even though pre-nuptial agreements aren't legally recognised in Britain. Desktop Lawyer -- the outfit that also offers online divorces -- claims the service is good news for cautious lovers who plan to pop the question on Valentines Day. The pre-nuptial agreement costs only £29.99. The Webco said it enables couples to reach "a financial agreement before marrying, and ensure that it is only their hearts they are giving away at the altar". Richard Cohen, legal director of Epoch Software, the developer of the Desktop Lawyer service, said: "We predict that over the next ten years, 20 per cent of UK couples will be using pre-nuptial agreements. "So while this service is not yet legally binding in this country, there is little doubt that pre-nuptials will continue to gain popularity and recognition on both sides of the Atlantic. "I must stress that we are not trying to mislead anyone," he continued. Desktop Lawyer's pre-nuptial agreement will simply allow people to make a record of their financial circumstances before marrying, and under current law a judge may or may not decide to take notice of this." A spokesman for the Lord Chancellor's Department said the government has voiced its interest in pre-nuptial agreements, but had "no firm commitment either way". Cohen's teenage son, Benjamin, recently scooped a ton of gongs courtesy of the mysterious site, InternetAwards.co.uk. ® Related Stories Divorcees do it on their desktops Teenage dot com sensation sweeps Mystery Awards</</p>
