WHEREAS the parties each acknowledge that they enter into this agreement voluntarily, without any duress or undue influence, and that each has had the opportunity to consult with counsel of his/her choice;


1. Marital Status.
The joint residency of the parties shall in no way render the parties married, by operation of common law or any other operation of law.

2. Consideration.

This Agreement fully contemplates and compensates any and all services provided by either party for the benefit of the other during the course of their joint residency. The furnishing of sexual services shall in no way be construed as consideration for this Agreement.

3. Disclosure of Current Financial Status. Each party has fully and completely, to the best of his/her knowledge, disclosed to the other party his/her current financial condition including all assets and liabilities. Each party has attached a balance sheet to this agreement indicating his/her current assets and liabilities with the understanding that this balance sheet reflects his/her current financial status to the best of his/her ability.

The First Party shall contribute _____________ percent ( ____%) per month;

The Second Party shall contribute _____________ percent ( ____%) per month.

The parties shall deposit their pro rata contributions monthly into the joint checking account of the parties. Either party may draw upon this checking account.

7. Commingling of Property.   Absent a reasonable demonstration of sole ownership, where either party commingles joint property with separate property, any commingled property shall be presumed to be joint property of the parties. 

8. Division of Property upon Termination.   Upon termination of this Agreement or termination of the joint residency, all jointly owned property shall be divided among the parties according to their pro rata share listed above.  If the parties are unable to agree on the appropriate division of joint property, they may appoint an independent and mutually agreed upon Third-party to act as Appraiser.  The Appraiser shall divide the property among the parties according to his/her pro rata share.
