Couples making explicit, binding contracts, with wild demands, before they agree to marry. Paula faris explains the extreme prenups. Reporter: In the movie "intolerable cruelty," george clooney plays a divorce attorney, who takes pride in his iron-clad prenuptial agreement. I saw an ad in the paper, no-fault divorce. Two-week divorce without a lawyer. I'm sick to my stomach. Reporter: And although prenups have become more common place, more couples are taking it to the extreme.

Reporter: But lori zazlow believes that putting these requests in a legal contract can weigh on a marriage. These are such unfair requests. Anyone whose lived enough to know, people change. If you love someone, you love them inside and outside. Reporter: For better or worse, or something like that. For "good morning america," paula faris, abc news, new york.
