Contract for a just and fair marriage

CWJ promotes the use of a prenuptial agreement that prevents the situation of recalcitrance. Download a copy of our Contract for a Just and Fair Marriage.

The contract is our attempt to draft a document that will enable our children to marry in accordance with the laws of Moses and Israel in a manner that will not compromise ideals of freedom, equality, autonomy and marital partnership. It protects against get extortion, as well as cases of the husband’s absence or inability to give a get. We draw upon traditional prenups that are based upon increased spousal support, as well as on such suggestions as Rabbi Broyde’s tripartite agreement.
