Can’t help wondering if there’s such a thing as a credit default swap for marriage. Might be something Goldman Sachs could offer.

Otherwise, the idea’s always appealed to me.

I remember listening to a couple who had a marriage contract. It spelled out what each of them were responsible for. So that if a problem came up they went back to the contract to see who was at fault. I think the more that is spelled out on expectations in the relationship the better. Would a contract save it? I doubt it. People will break anything if they don’t want to do something.

In response to Mike, the fact that contracts are the lingua franca in business has not meant that they aren’t broken regularly nor that attorneys have nothing to do. The same would likely go for marriage contracts. But at least with marriage contracts being required, we might not see the stupid 24-hour marriages like those of some former Mousketeers. Nor would we be quite as likely to see people laboring for years with unstated conceptions of what a marriage is at any point in time. Like Kat says, a regular reappraisal (contract renewal) would likely lead to earlier divorces in those situations in which that is the best option.

Marriage forever between two exclusive individuals is really the construct of industrial capitalist society, in which the ties to extended families and agrarian communities were severed, to allow freedom of labor mobility. Anthropologically speaking, seven years (the time to bring a child to a certain basic level of independence) was the primary building block of time for a human partnership, and after that, all bets were off. Of course, the clan and then the village often provided the support necessary to allow “marriages” to dissolve or evolve, but those resources are not as prevalent in our atomized society.

Renewable contracts seem to be a logical extension of the other factors that have been changing the marriage idiom of industrial society, which have included the increasing financial independence of women and the creation of social support structures (albeit mostly in European countries) that allow a transition of partners without major financial or social repercussions.
