R1: Infoslide: Lifestyle clauses are terms in prenuptial agreements that require a party to pay financial penalties if they violate the clause and end up getting a divorce. Such terms can prohibit a partner from cheating, the division of labour for childcare, the raising of children in a particular religion, the amount of time partners should spend together, or health and lifestyle demands

THW ban lifestyle clauses in prenupital agreements

R2: THBT developing nations should strongly de-prioritise economic strategies which rely on tourism (e.g., no funding to pro-tourism advertisement, strict regulations and taxation for hospitality industry, strongly prioritising other sectors)

R3: THS the attacks of feminists on conservative men based on their masculinity, (e..g. the Shapiro WAP parody, mocking MRAs for being single and living with their parents)

R4: THP to live in a world with one dominant global power, rather than a world with several competing global powers

R5: THR the narrative that we should derive meaning from work

SF: THW grant more power over the EU budget to countries that contribute more money to the budget than they receive in monetary benefits, rather than an equal say in the budget
