    Answered . I can't say what the law is in Florida, but yes, disclosure can be waived in New York. It's just not advisable. For a full assessment, schedule a consultation with a NYC Divorce attorney.

No thinking spouse-to-be should agree to this since it is common enough that a party will delude the other party, even if entering marriage. At least consult an attorney to review it before you sign the agreement.
