In this sketch from February 2004, Chappelle is seen romancing Rashida Jones. Before they seal that deal, he whips out a love contract, which spells out the terms of their lovemaking and allows Rashida to provide proof of her consent for sex…and other naughty Fifty Shades of Grey-ish possibilities.
While the love contract seemed like a ridiculous yet comical commentary on rape culture and disclosure, it would turn out to be the next big thing in marriages and workplace romance negotiations.
Lifestyle clauses, or love contracts as they are commonly known, have become a mainstay in Hollywood marriages. Jessica Biel has an infidelity clause in her prenup with husband, Justin Timberlake. If he cheats, she gets $500,000.
You don’t even have to be married to get your very own love contract. Cohabitation agreements are the new rage in monogamous relationships.
