When prenuptial agreements include lifestyle clauses

Many couples who get married in Colorado opt to sign a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. A prenuptial agreement can be very useful in setting forth certain terms in the event of a divorce, particularly when it comes to how finances and property will be divided.

However, sometimes couples choose to include other terms known as lifestyle clauses. Many celebrities have been known to have such things included in their prenuptial agreements. According to Men’s Health, examples of these include:

  • Limiting each person’s social media activity
  • How often the couple must be intimate with each other
  • Stipulating how much weight a person is allowed to gain
  • What happens if one spouse is unfaithful
  •  How often each set of in-laws is allowed to visit

However, just because terms such as these are included in a prenuptial agreement does not necessarily mean that they will be enforceable in court points out Forbes. That is why the language used in a prenuptial agreement is so important. The document should be drafted so that if one particular portion is found unenforceable, the remaining parts that are enforceable remain in place.

Even if a court finds that a so-called lifestyle clause is not enforceable, it does not mean that it still cannot have some benefit to the couple. For some people, having those conditions put in writing may act as a deterrent and keep one or both of the spouses from engaging in certain behaviors. In some cases, this may actually help make the couple’s marriage stronger.
