The Conscious Family Contract

The re-imagined, holistic prenuptial agreement that creates the foundation for extraordinary families

The conventional prenuptial agreement is focused purely on protecting financial interests. But issues related to parenting, sex, communication, household roles, and companionship are just as foundational to a lasting marriage as money and financial security.


Most prenuptial agreements are one-sided, protecting the interests of one spouse over the other. This creates an imbalance of how each spouse feels about their contributions during the marriage.

The conventional process of negotiating and entering into a prenuptial agreement involves trading a legal document between lawyers, which often puts toxic stress on an imminent marriage, just when the focus should be on the hopes, dreams and love of the couple.

The Conscious Family Contract is a new take on prenuptial agreements that reflects and values the full range of contributions to a marriage, providing appropriate protections to each party while reducing the damage to the marriage a lopsided agreement can cause.

Couples with a Conscious Family Contract have developed important tools and structures to create an unbreakable union that can weather any challenge. (Including children!)

When you work with us to create a Conscious Family Contract, you will:

  • Receive guidance to help make fundamental commitments with your partner

  • Develop workable agreements around budgeting, savings, and spending

  • Learn new communication skills 

  • Identify your agreements around parenting  

  • Explore partnership options other than marriage, if desired

  • Create your real, concrete wedding vows 

  • Learn more about each other’s issues, and get tools to maintain affinity even when either of you gets triggered

  • Learn each of your Enneagram types

  • Explore what separate property will "vest" in the marriage over time

  • Create a "purpose" driven union

  • Identify who you will jointly take your issues to, and when

  • Identify the process to use in the event of relationship transition

  • Develop an informed list of potential guardians for any future children

  • ​Define the boundaries of your monogamous relationship or alternative arrangement 

  • Receive a special couples portrait with a professional photographer

Partners who have an extraordinary relationship do so because they've invested money and time in the right ways to build a  life together.


Couples anywhere in the world can work to create a Conscious Family Contract. If outside of Colorado, parties are advised to hire local counsel to confirm enforceability.
