Would You Start A New Relationship With Terms and A Contract?

Have you ever been stuck in the “what are we” phase of a relationship? Well, a new and innovative service aims to lessen the awkwardness of taking the next step through a ‘couples’ contract’. The contract focuses on 5 ‘basic’ sections–including relationship principles, date nights, and communication; 5 ‘bold’ sections, which includes touchier subjects like religion, finances, and moving in/away; and 5 ‘between’ sections, which includes vacations, fitness, and responsibilities–among others

 

Each section dives deeper into deal breakers and boundaries for each, putting these standards in place before they can cause detriment to the relationship. The contracts are non-legally binding and exist as more of a conversation starter for relationship needs than a contractual obligation. The website offering the service, The Couples Company, describes the service as “a non-legally binding tool for all types of relationships and partnerships to use to gain clarity, set expectations, and get on the same page. It can be fun, serious, or anything in between, but most importantly it helps start the conversations that are meaningful to you and your partner.”

 

Over 5000 couples have already utilized the $20 service, “Literally took all of our difficult conversations and made them easy to talk about,” reviews couple Taylor and Erin. Another testimonial says “The best date night we have had all year. Once we started going through it, we couldn’t stop!”. Is the Couples Contract a worthwhile investment, or just a passing fad? We’ll let you decide.
