May's supporters argue that the deal is the best on offer, and the alternatives are a chaotic "no-deal" Brexit that would cause huge disruption to people and businesses, or an election that could see the Conservative government replaced by the left-of-center Labour Party.
She told her cabinet that the 585-page document makes it clear that the integrity of the United Kingdom is maintained. Next she must persuade a rebellious Parliament to follow suit and back her plan.
And Conservative Party MP Peter Bone, a leading eurosceptic, accused May of "not delivering the Brexit people voted for".
Some key pro-Brexit ministers, including global development secretary Penny Mordaunt and work and pensions secretary Esther McVey, were named as possible members of her Cabinet who might resign in protest and possibly even pave the way for a leadership challenge against the PM. She was overruled by May's officials and the government's chief whip, and remained angry at the outcome, people familiar with the matter said.
And there were suggestions last night that pro-Leave ministers such as Penny Mordaunt, Esther McVey and even Brexit secretary Dominic Raab could decide now is the moment for them to quit.
The main obstacle to a withdrawal agreement has always been how to ensure there are no customs posts or other checks along the border between the UK's Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland after Brexit.
May's critics say this will keep the country in a potentially open-ended customs union with the EU.
The solution is meant to be temporary, but pro-Brexit politicians in Britain fear it may become permanent, hampering Britain's ability to strike new trade deals around the world. During this period nothing will change, and businesses can carry on operating as now.
There will be a provision to allow the two sides to extend the transition to a fixed date rather than activate the backstop. This, too, is created to help avoid the need for customs checks at the Irish border.

The Parliament website lists 93 MPs who are ministers and would therefore be bound to support Theresa May's Brexit plans owing to collective responsibility.
Earlier, addressing a raucous House of Commons during her weekly Prime Ministers' Questions (PMQs) ahead of the crunch meeting at Downing Street, the British PM told MPs that the deal agreed with the European Union delivers on the British public's vote in favour of Brexit in the 2016 referendum."What we have been negotiating is a deal that does deliver on the vote of the British people", she said, adding that the agreement would give the United Kingdom control of borders, laws and money and also protect business and jobs.
The magic number is 320, a majority of the 639 voting MPs in the Commons which excludes suspensions, the Speaker, three Deputy Speakers and seven Sinn Fein MPs who abstain from attending the UK Parliament.
Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland said that proposed deal would be "devastating" for Scotland, pledging her party would oppose it during the Parliamentary hearings. Then, probably at some point in December, the House of Commons will be asked to vote finally on whether to accept it or not.
