    Though many of these items seem like they are, or ought to be, common sense, having a formal framework for getting expectations out in the open and helping clear communication happen can only be a good thing.

    The sample contract is also commendable in that both future spouses are making the same commitments to each other. This is a great tool for all couples, opposite-sex and same-sex, for that reason.

    It's refreshing to see a marriage-related story that is about strengthening relationships without fretting over who is supposed to do what, or who is allowed to do what.

    I think every successful couple will recognize that these things, along with shared values, are things that help a relationship work!
