EarnTheNecklace.com, a revealing and engaging web site with articles written by women who exchange their stories and confessions about being in a relationship with a much older man, releases its expert statement on the growing popularity of so-called lifestyle “love contracts” in sugar daddy/sugar baby marriages and co-habitation relationships.
“Over the last number of weeks, there has been a large number of articles published attesting to the rise of lifestyle love contracts for those about to wed and those in long-term relationships,” observes Riya Beaumont, EarnTheNecklace.com’s content editor. “While there has been a lot of backlash over the idea, at EarnTheNecklace.com, we know that lifestyle clauses that include weight, infidelity, and time spent apart can help motivate those in a sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship to communicate and discuss their goals. Putting issues all on the table can help couples be more accountable to each other.” (Source: Marsh, L., “'Love contracts' that make requirements on sex, weight, cheating are increasingly common, experts say,” Daily News June 3, 2013; http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/love-contracts-demands-weight-drugs-cheating-sex-article-1.1362310#ixzz2VXvp3UjC.)
Sugar daddy Michael Douglas and his sugar baby Catherine Zeta-Jones are reported to have a love contract, stating that Zeta-Jones would receive $2.8 million per year of marriage if they were to divorce. She would also get a $5.0-million bonus if Douglas were to be caught cheating. (Ibid.)
Rich and famous couples that get married do not have a monopoly on emotional and physical accountability, says Beaumont. A lot of sugar daddies and sugar babies share a roof but do not want to walk down the aisle. It’s still important for a sugar baby and sugar daddy cohabitating to set lifestyle ground rules, according to the EarnTheNecklace.com content editor.
“While some think a lifestyle-specific love contract takes the love out of a relationship, one could argue that the marriage vow’s requirements that the couple honors and cherishes each other, in sickness and health, are lifestyle clauses; so too is ‘staying faithful,’” Beaumont observes. “A woman saying she will ‘obey’ her husband is agreeing to a lifestyle-specific clause. While fewer and fewer couples include that word in their marriage vows, there doesn’t seem to be any uproar or protests. At EarnTheNecklace.com, we consider love contracts to be a natural extension of the original agreement.”
Love and marriage are more than just emotions and biology, according to Beaumont. They’re about more than just subjective terms like honor and cherish, richer and poorer. They’re about companionship and compatibility; in fact, Beaumont points out that lifestyle-specific love contracts address many issues that might otherwise get overlooked.
“While most lifestyle clauses are not enforceable in court, they still act as a platform for communication. Whether they’re in a sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship or not, every couple could benefit from more communication,” Beaumont concludes.
