Third parties have no rights or interest in a prenup.
No, this is a wrong assertion. And very theoretical.
Let me give you an example I have seen from up close: A family member got divorced and obviously the notary used the prenup. In which it was determined that of the multiple properties the couple owned, every single one was assigned to a partner (they divided into country and region). So a couple of houses for one, and the remainders for the other.
But the problem was that they owned the properties together. Since the re-registration of a house was very expensive (up to 10%) they wanted to avoid the costs and decided to keep the ownership as it was.
On the tax return of the concerned countries they had done a split of 50/50 of the real estate tax before the divorce. Now of course they wanted a 100/0 depending on who got which house.
The tax office only agreed after hand-over of the prenup.
