The model marriage agreement is actually the most fascinating part of the book for the issue of trust. In addition to some testimony, vows and some references to Scripture, most are more like a secular marriage contract. There are three pages that deal with divorce provisions, another page on separation and significant parts on the number of work of each spouse, how finances are managed and how to share the estate after death. In today`s modern world, the term prenup is as common as the word marriage. A pre-nup is also known as a marital contract, which is a legal contract that aims to protect assets if a divorce occurs later in the marriage. Even those who do not share the Christian faith have differing opinions on whether a prenup is an acceptable practice within a marriage or not, but despite the support or absence of those outside our community and faith, what does God say about Prenup? Third, their discussion of God`s desires for married couples in Chapter 6 was encouraging. Beyond a few small differences, I think she has clearly expressed biblical expectations towards men and women in marriage. It should be commended for its focus on these theological issues. Unlike today`s agreements and contracts, the price of marriage was not intended to protect property or other financial assets, but was merely a means of caring for a woman who might never remarry. Now that so much importance is given to the protection of wealth, sometimes without realizing it, there is a change among those who are supposed to marry.
Suddenly, there is a backup plan in case things don`t work out, or there`s a sense of shame and pain that comes with a partner who has no faith or trust in the other. He may doubt a possible marriage, even if it is proposed by family members out of concern. We are terrible if we realize the end of the agreement. That is why we need the Bible to get us back on track. And I hope that, in drafting our agreements together, we clarify what we agree on, we remember our covenant, and we recognize the depth of the commitment we make to each other, which must reflect Jesus` commitment to us, realizing that we are sinners and that perfection in this aspiration is not possible. Otherwise, we wouldn`t need a savior. Most importantly, you are both ready to commit and trust each other. In most situations, one man and a woman who surrender to God and the other do not need a conjugal agreement. Unfortunately, I think that trust in the marriage agreement has no place. She has elevated the marital agreement instead of an alliance and does not distinguish the practical effects of what she calls a “Christian” marriage agreement from the effects of a secular marriage. Hartman`s latest criticism of the Christian pre-band agreement is an overwhelming emphasis on detail.
