Case : Rajlucky V/S Bhootnath
An agreement was entered into by a husband with his wife during quarrels and
disagreements, whereby the husband promised to give some property to wife. But
after this he refused to perform the action and here the agreement was held to be
void.
Judgement :
As mentioned above an agreement was entered in to by a Ankit with his wife Ankita
during their quarrels, whereby the husband agrees to pay the maintenance
allowances to his wife provided she stays separately. In the above case the
agreement held to be void because, under the circumstances, there was no natural
love and affection between parties. As per the exceptions under the consideration
section 25(1) love and affection states that agreement has to be made out of natural
love and affection and it should be between the parties standing near relationship to
each other. As we seen in this case nearness of relationship, however does not
necessarily import love and affection. Therefore there is no consideration made by
husband hence it is only an agreement and not a contract. Therefore it is a void
agreement hence husband need not have to pay compensation for the
separation.
