|Contracts can define roles
and expectations, and can be great fun to write. This example is here only to provide
suggestions and guidelines. If you and your partner wish to have a contract, write your
own according to your own relationship. A contract similar to this one might be used for a
week or weekend, or as a trial for a new live-in relationship. Feel free to copy it and
amend to your own relationship.
