In our day breaking an agreement is very common. How does God fell about such actions? A prime example of such a person is Judas, the Betrayer of Jesus Christ. When did Judas go bad? The Bible talks about allowing tares to grow with wheat. Tares are "christians" who don't obey God's Will and Word and Wheat are Chrsitians who do obey God's Will and Word (Matthew 13:24-30).
Humans tend to rationalize and justify their fleshly and carnal ways which is why divorce rates and other ungodly separations and actions occur (Malachi 2:15-16; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Galatians 5:1-21; 1 Corinthians 6:1-13; 1 John 2:15-17).
Judas did not "go bad". Judas was bad from day one. He became the treasurer so he could rob the money (John 12:4-6).
Like Judas many persons betray Jesus every day when they chose to follow their fleshly and carnal ways and disobey Jesus and God's Word (The Holy Bible)(John 12:4-6; Psalm 119:105; Luke 6:46; John 15:10-13; 2 Timothy 3:1-5).
So it's a Character issue. It has nothing to do with taking one's time to be sure. If disobedient ones were really putting on the Spirit like the Bible tells them to they really wouldn't succumb to the works of the flesh which is sin (Acts 4:32-35; Galatians 5:1-25; Galatians 5:16-17; Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17; Philippians 4:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12; Philippians 2:5-7; Romans 12:1-5).
Most relationships fail because such ones trust in their own personal "goodness", intellect and emotions and fail to turn to God the Spirit (John 4:24; John 3:16; John 3:1-8).
There is nothing wrong with two Holy Spirit Led Christians forming any type of agreement. Such an agreement will be blessed when God is invited into it (Genesis 24:1-67).
The Bible is God's Word and gives plenty advice on relationships and marriage. When people resist or disobey the Holy Spirit and follow their own righteousness, intellect or emotions the result will be ungodly separations (Matthew 19:3-12; Malachi 2:15-16; Ephesians 5:21-33; Matthew 6:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 16; John 17:17; Hebrews 4:11-12).
Jesus and the Bible warn that such ungodly disobedience might hinder a person from everlasting life in Heaven (Matthew 7:15-21; 1 Corinthians 6:9-13; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 16). Our good works, intellect, opinions or emotional feelings will not get us into Heaven (Luke 18:9-14; John 15:9-27).
Whenever anyone unjustifiably breaks an agreement Jesus calls this sin and evil (Matthew 5:37). Jesus and God both confirm that frivolous marital separations anger God (Malachi 2:16; Matthew 19:3-12).
Christian should strive to learn and apply God's Word and His Way of Thinking before they enter into ungodly agreements, separations or sins (1 Corinthians 6:9-13; Galatians 5:1-25; 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 16; Matthew 5:37; Malachi 2:16; Matthew 19:3-12).
