The Social Media Clause: a new addition to the pre-nup?

A trend is emerging in the UK, following the move stateside, by couples who are incorporating a social media clause into pre-nuptial agreements.

The idea is to protect oneself against a partner posting any specified information, comments and/or images online; from insulting comments to reputation damaging images.

The penalty for breaching the agreements is an agreed financial sum.

Whilst some suggest this is a display of mistrust in relationships to include such a clause, I believe this is just another indication of the way social media and the digital age is impacting and shaping every aspect of modern life.

What do you think? Is a social media clause  necessary?
