TOKYO, Oct. 23 /CNW/ - Agreeship (www.agreeship.com), an affordable
online prenup and relationship consultation service for couples, is expected
to serve more than 4 million couples worldwide.
On Agreeship.com, couples will answer questions and a diagnosis will be
instantly provided. A score indicates whether the couple should sign a prenup
and/or seek a professional consultation and what relationship issues the
couple is likely to face.
"This is not just to tell you if you need a legal agreement before you
get married," says Katsuyuki Tanaka, the founder and president of Gaisen Inc,
which developed Agreeship. "This will illustrate what differences the couple
has and in what area they may have issues, while suggesting how they can
improve the relationship, based on the identified differences."
"It takes only 3 minutes to answer the yes/no questions and no personal
information is required" he said. The 20 questions cover finances, values and
The fee for the online consultation is about US$15, which will be paid
via PayPal. Personalized online consultation with lawyers, financial planners
and counselors will be available for additional fees in 2008.
Agreeship stands for "Agreement of Partnership." Though the word "prenup"
is used, the service isn't limited to couples who are about to tie the knot.
"Agreeship is a great way to strengthen relationship for married couples and
couples who are just dating," says Mr. Tanaka.
While legal help for preparing a prenup is widely available online, "an
online service that helps increase awareness or improve communication among
couples is rare," he says. His main target is couples, married or unmarried,
in their 20s to 40s, who are Internet savvy.
Mr. Tanaka says: "The service is useful for international or
intercultural couples in particular." In early 2008 Agreeship will be tailored
based on nationality or the country in which the couples reside, and Agreeship
will pinpoint what issues might arise legally and culturally for those
