Sure gvjt, you and your spouse can agree to anything regarding spousal support. When a divorce is applied for, the only financial provision the court reviews is the reasonableness of the child support.

To a certain extent, no agreement about spousal support is final, as the court always reserves change an order or agreement. So, it’s always possible that if your spouse remarries, she tries to get spousal support anyhow. However, this is a risk in any spousal support agreement, not just the one you’re proposing. Also, it really changes the burden in your favour. Instead of you needing to argue that spousal support should end because she’s remarrying, she needs to argue that the spousal support agreement should not be followed, which may not be easy argument to make.

You should also consider cohabitation - in other words, spousal support ends when she remarries or cohabits with someone in a marriage like relationship for say, 1 year.
