Why should you sign such an agreement?
Israeli law states that in order to divorce both parties must agree. If one side refuses, the other side may find themselves in a situation of "get-refusal" and "chained" to a marriage against their will. In this situation, financial blackmail is often used in exchange for the get. The signing of this type of agreement is a declaration that your marriage will be based on the principles of equality, love, trust and mutual respect.
How does it work?
In cases of get-recalcitrance, the recalcitrant party will pay for every day of refusal and thus will have a financial incentive to agree and not refuse.
