The co-habs may be enforceable in the event of marriage, many of them provide for it. Whether there are parts of the agreement, or the entire co-hab, is enforceable is for a court to determine.

The parts of the matrimonial home being excluded is likely partially unenforceable. OP's ex would likely be entitled to the value upon co-habitation being excluded, but any growth in value would likely be included as matrimonial property.

Regarding spousal support and other clauses in the co-hab, well those would have to be found as being unconscionable. Or you would have to prove you were under duress and forced to sign it for it to be thrown out. And if you want to argue those points, you are going to have to have deep pockets, especially if you both had lawyers when the co-hab was signed.
