A reconciliation agreement between parties is similar to a premarital or prenuptial agreement in that it generally sets forth the terms and conditions of the resumed relationship much like a premarital agreement sets forth the terms expected upon separation or divorce. Reconciliation agreements are executed when a couple is planning to reconcile and continue with their marriage but specific conditions are necessary to do so. Often times a reconciliation agreement can ease the mind of a wronged spouse when an act of marital fault was committed such as adultery, gambling, or an alcohol or drug addiction. The agreement will set forth what terms and conditions will apply to the parties’ separation if the misconduct is repeated and the parties do not stay together.
