How can a prenuptial agreement outline what happens to alimony?

A prenuptial agreement can provide predetermined details for how much you will pay or receive in spousal support. The prenup can address if one of you becomes ill and can no longer work over the course of your marriage. What if you or your spouse cheats? What about spousal income loss when one spouse stays home to raise the children?

In lieu of monthly payments, would a lump sum or equivalent, assigning over home ownership, for example, be an acceptable alternative? Many couples choose to make decisions about alimony now rather than fight about it later.
