Demographics

The city of West Hollywood has around 1.88 square miles of land and a population of at least 37,000. The median resident age is 41.1 years. The median household income in 2013 was $51,349 and the median house or condominium property value in 2013 was $60,900.

This city is significantly well educated with over 60% of the residents holding at least a bachelor’s degree. Many of the residents are engaged in occupations involving the arts, design, entertainment, and media, management, and in business and financial operations.

Around 60% of the population was never married in 2013, while 21.5% was married and 11.5% was divorced. There are approximately 24,328 households with an average household size of 1.5 people. WeHo is one of the most prominent gay communities in the U.S. with over 1/3rd of the population identifying themselves as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBT).

Same-Sex Prenuptial Agreements

An estimated six percent of the households in WeHo are reportedly same-sex unmarried partner households, but with the recent Supreme Court ruling confirming the legality of same-sex marriages in the United States, the number of same-sex married partners are expected to increase in the city.

Same-sex couples are covered by the same family law provisions governing heterosexual couples in California. This means having the same rights and obligations in marriage and divorce, as well as the right to enter into prenuptial agreements to govern aspects such as spousal support, child support, child custody, and marital assets.

Many same-sex couples may have been partners living together for years, and are likely to have acquired substantial assets before getting married. It’s important to document all your agreements and understandings regarding these assets before tying the knot.
