Average cost is $2,500 to $7,000, barring the complications of a large fortune.

Lifestyle provisions may be included but are not legally binding. A New Mexico couple, for example, stipulated that they have "healthy" sex five times a week, pay cash unless otherwise agreed and turn off the lights at 11:30 p.m.
