I'd like to understand more about what a morality clause is specifically in NJ. Is it a generally the same across the board or is it specifically generated by us in the paperwork?
If you have any experience with this clause, as well, I'd like to hear it. I have no problem with the idea of it, I just can't seem to find that much information on it.

What applies to one parent also applies to the other, but expect immorality to be non-enforceble should you need to try to enforce it.

It's mostly being used "against" me, however, I'm okay with it, as I'm not looking to play house with anyone. The ex would try to enforce it and would have no problem having the kids testify. I wouldn't put my kids in that position, so I wouldn't play that game anyway.

The kids would not be asked to testify. Unless they are later teens, they have no say or part in divorce and are shielded from the court's perspective. Your ex would be wrong and damaging to them if she did involve them. Also, morality clauses pretty much will say you can't have overnight guests in your bed unless you marry them and judges are notorious of leaving them out of a final settlement simply because they know how difficult they are to legally enforce.
