At the time of marriage, a religious contract (Haq Mehr (Mahr)) was signed where the husband agreed to pay the wife a certain sum of money on wife's request or at the dissolution of marriage. Husband wrote in at the dissolution of marriage, the amount, and the form was signed by both parties, two witnesses, notarized, and recorded with the religious organization registered with the city. Assuming that there was no duress or corercion and husband signed this with free will, can this contract be enforced by the courts as a valid contract or pre-nup if all the material terms are listed?
Would it be better to call this a contract or a prenuptial agreement?
