The CWJ Contract addresses these halakhic problems, but does it solve them?


Only partially.The Agreement assumes that most spouses will prefer to arrange for a get and not cause compensable harm. However, there are wealthy, vengeful, poor, and missing spouses on whom the Contract will have little, impact.  

The Terms of Marriage section provides a systemic solution to the problems of get refusal,aginut, chalitza, andmamzer.However, it depends upon the ability to convene a rabbinic tribunal willing to recognize and implement the mechanisms introduced in it to affect that solution.CWJ believes that when faced with difficult cases, even the rabbinic courts, which normally interpret halakha in a narrow and strict manner, will implement the Terms of Marriage.
