See an attorney and have them draw up a legally binding document. If you don't, then you're bound to miss something and someone will regret it. I see it all too often at my office. A couple neglects to have a proper agreement drafted and they end up fighting over assets.

It may cost you between $300 and $500, but just the attorney's fees to negotiate a disagreement will run many times that, and that is if you don't have to take the issues to trial.
