Separation Agreement wording question


#1

Without commenting on the overall validity of the agreement, those two changes would not affect the legality of the agreement.

The separation agreement presented to my husband has two statements he wants reworded.

ORIGINAL: certain differences have arisen between them rendering it undesirable for them to continue to live together as Husband and Wife
REVISION: certain differences have arisen between them rendering it undesirable for Wife to continue to live with Husband

ORIGINAL: by reason whereof they separated on June 30, 2007, and have agreed to live separate and apart permanently
REVISION: by reason whereof Wife decided to separate on June 30, 2007, and has determined to live separate and apart permanently

Will these revisions affect the legality of the document?
