Undue influence and duress are two common law factors that are considered by a court when someone is seeking to set aside a pre-nuptial or cohabitation agreement. Generally, it is not enough to feel pressure to sign to keep the relationship going, or the wedding date preserved.  The undue influence or duress must be significant in order for it to be a determining factor in setting aside an agreement.
