Boundaries

In Writing

Everyone remembers words differently. If an agreement is in writing, then there will always be proof of the precise terms of the agreement. No more “You promised you would make dinner once a week!”

Equality

There will never be any talk of things being “not fair” because each person had their chance to put in their say. The relationship agreement builds in compromise, and through compromise, it builds equality. Thank you, Sheldon and Amy, for showing us the meaning of an agreement.
