Although it's difficult to know the amount you'll earn during your career, it's sensible to be ready. If you're planning to get married, we suggest that you create a prenuptial contract with your spouse prior to the wedding. The prenuptial agreement will outline the way the assets of your marriage will be split in the event that the marriage ends with separation and divorce.
If you're married you can enter into a postnuptial agreement to achieve the same goal.
