well, one thing to keep in mind, is that in your contract/agreement or whatever, you should make no mention of it being in consideration for love or any terms indicating intimacy. the courts tend to hold that the contract is invalid, in cases where there is any implication that monetary gain is being exhanged for an intimate relationship.

Very interesting point. I heard mention since looking into this situation to possibly put *on the deed* - "in consideration for love and affection". But from what you said that doesn't sound like the way to go. I will look at the book you mentioned. Thanks.
