All couples have their own unique set of these reciprocal agreements, but there are some that seem universal in most of the lasting relationships I have experienced in my plus-plus-year career. The landlord only has to consult with his tenants before expiring a contract of a minimum duration of more than twelve months. It is therefore of little importance to know whether the duration can be longer, provided it can be completed before the end of a year. However, the text must be carefully considered when using rolling contracts. It is too easy to create a concept that, in reality, cannot be developed at the end of a year by a non-organization. It should be noted that many general interest agreements are used because of the uncertainty of grant funding. Such organizations cannot afford to pay huge amounts of notification. In these circumstances, termination clauses must be carefully adhered to in order to limit exposure as much as possible. The Antarctic Treaty`s (ATCM) annual consultative meetings of the Antarctic Treaty are the international forum for the management and administration of the region. Only 29 of the 54 contracting parties are allowed to participate in these meetings, but the remaining 25 parties can still participate. The participants in the decision are the advisory parties, which include, in addition to the initial 12 signatures, 17 countries that have demonstrated their interest in Antarctica through important scientific activities in that country. The Antarctic Treaty also hosts special consultative meetings of the Antarctic Treaty (SATCM), which are usually convened on more important but less frequent topics and meetings of experts.  The Antarctic Treaty and related agreements, collectively known as the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS), govern international relations with Antarctica, the only continent in the world without an indigenous population. For the purposes of the contract system, Antarctica is defined as the entire land shelf and ice south of 60 degrees latitude. The contract came into force in 1961 and currently has 54 parties.  The treaty provides for Antarctica as a scientific preserve, creates freedom of scientific inquiry and prohibits military activities on the continent. The treaty was the first arms control agreement concluded during the Cold War. Since September 2004, the secretariat of the Antarctic Treaty has been located in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  I want us to agree on how to negotiate these disputes and make agreements that we both believe will work. We must be authentic with each other, distributing our time, energy, love, money, social bonds, physical contact, spiritual devotions and all other interests that could rival our commitment to each other. Legal counsel should consider including anti-obsolescence language in their agreements, particularly with respect to provisions that may be contentious, such as termination clauses or restrictive agreements.
A standard clause might be that “the terms of this agreement are governed by the parties, regardless of the duration of the employment or the change in the position, remuneration, title of the worker and whether this change is substantial or not.” Governments that are parties to the Antarctic Treaty and its Protocol on Environmental Protection implement the articles of these agreements and the decisions taken under these agreements by national legislation. These laws generally apply only to their own citizens, wherever they are in Antarctica, and are intended to enforce the consensual decisions of the advisory parties: activities that are acceptable, entry areas, processes that must precede environmental impact assessment activities, etc. The Antarctic Treaty is often seen as an example of the common heritage of humanity.  “Although the text of the clause does not prevent termination before the expiry of the twelve months, such a termination would not have any effect until after the 12-month period had expired.
