How to Write a Relationship Contract


Yes, Relationship Contract

It began as a joke! I actually had never heard of this until one day my beau and I were joking around on Facebook and there were some offerings made. I responded by saying, “Great, I’ll send the contract!” His response was, “Write it up!” So here we are.

After thinking more about it, I think it’s a wonderful idea. I look at it as positive re-enforcement. It’s our way of saying that we are committed to this thing by outlining details that we feel will help our relationship thrive. We are holding each other accountable for continuing to do the things that has made our relationship a success.

My first thought was to compile a few questions to figure out what areas this relationship contract needed to address. A Google search returned a site called
I found it to be a very useful guide, although I did tailor my contract to our specific needs.
The site even recommends having a ceremony to consummate the contract.


What are your feelings about a relationship contractt? Is it something you would consider?

    I think that a relationship contract is a great re-enforcement for a successful relationship. It allows for both partners to voice their standards and expectations. So many people marry and sign a wedding contract and a relationship contract sounds so appropriate :) I do not have a contract in place in my relationship but I would consider it definately. I always think its important to have good communications in a relationship.

      I’m like you, I don’t see any problem with it. I mean, especially if you’re both serious about committing and moving forward in the relationship. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated. We included things like maintaining communication, motivating each other, etc. we did add some other things that were personal but after over viewing it, we both agreed on the contents of the agreement. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I always appreciate good feedback, lol :-)
