Respond to the following prompt:

Start out with describing your ideal marriage in one sentence.

Delineate rights and duties for yourself and your spouse in five different areas of marriage such as housework, children, relations with in-laws and other relatives, emotional support, intimacy, leisure time, last name, pets, etc…. Do not just focus on the usual economic issues!

After you wrote up your prenup discuss the following questions:
What are the underlying general assumptions in your ideal view of marriage and your prenup? (e.g. shared norms and values, spouses are employed, living in their own household, sharing a household, etc…)
What are the underlying gender roles in your view of an ideal marriage and your prenup?
Do you think the issues you covered are typical issues facing couples today?
Where do you anticipate some resistance from your spouse and why?
Is your prenup applicable to other social groups in the US (ethnic groups, different income levels, homosexual couples…)? What would you need to change if you would apply your prenup to another group?
