A sunset arrangement can be inserted into a marriage agreement stipulating that the contract expires after a specified period. In Maine, it automatically expires after the birth of a child, provided the parties do not renew the contract if the parties do not renew the agreement.  In other countries, a number of years of marriage will result in the expiration of a marriage. In countries that have adopted the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act (UPAA), there is no sunset provision in the law, but one could be under private contract. Note that the states have different versions of the UPAA. These agreements can be covered by the Indian Contract Act 1872. Section 10 of the Indian Contracts Act states that agreements must be considered contracts when they are concluded by the free consent of the parties.  Section 23 of the same statute states that a contract may be non-sour if it is immoral or contrary to public policy.  2. Make sure that only one lawyer is responsible for the entire trial, the senior coordinator is among the different lawyers in different jurisdictions working on the marriage project and is the main (or sometimes the only) link with the client.
If a lawyer is not clearly responsible, there can be great confusion, lawyers will be tempted to play a more important role than would be appropriate, the client will receive conflicting advice and important issues could never be addressed. The 2014 Report of the Legal Commission on Marital Property accepted the decision in cyclists in general and recommended the creation by Parliament of a “qualifying marriage agreement” that would create a fully binding pre-marital agreement as long as certain requirements were met.

If you are the one who renounces the rights you might otherwise have, if you divorce, you may feel that your spouse is not fair. But fairness is very different from disunity. The longer your marriage and the greater the gap between the two spouses, the more likely it is that the marital agreement will be unacceptable.
When the agreement is put in place to leave a spouse on the street without the financial means to support himself, the judge is more likely to determine the agreement as unacceptable and invalid.
