Write your contract

Write your contract

Writing a relationship contract can save you a lot of pain later on. This capsule is prickly, but it's worth it.

• Free your mind of prejudices and read about the Relationship Contract.
• If you're interested in things but don't know where to start, read "The New ‘I do’" and see how other people do it.

• Use a pen and piece of paper to
write down 10 things you expect from
a relationship at this time in your life. If you are in a relationship now, ask your partner(s) to make their own list and try to get everything together in a common agreement.
• Superheroes evolve and your contract should too. Put a review date and sched- ule it on your calendar so you don't forget it.


If you are in a relation- ship that doesn’t offer what you want but there are children involved, we recommend you read about "conscious uncoupling." It is a friendly separation proposal that prioritiz- es dialogue between parents and the well-be- ing of the little ones. Although the concept was introduced in the 70s, it recently became popular after the separation of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow.
