So a marriage booster clause is a name I gave to the plan for the marriage to stay together and those are clauses we put in the postnuptial agreement that sets out, for example, the parties agree to attend marriage education classes for the next six months with such and such institution whether it’s online or in person. There might be another part of it, another marriage booster clause that says one of the party’s may have a drinking problem so they are going to go to AA and maybe a different kind of therapist as well.
