Hamilton v. Hamilton
Facts:

            The wife in Virginia Beach instituted a suit against the husband alleging that a certain real property agreement entered into by them was void and unenforceable. The agreement provided that the husband would buy property in the names of both parties, and the wife would become jointly liable on the mortgage note. It further provided that should either party start proceedings to affect the marital relationship, the wife was required to convey her interest in the property to the husband, and the husband was required to assume all debt and hold the wife harmless from any claims regarding the property. The chancellor held the agreement void and unenforceable on the grounds that it was against public policy and lacked mutuality. On appeal, the court reversed and remanded the chancellor's judgment, finding the agreement valid and enforceable. The court held that the agreement, rather than encouraging or facilitating a divorce or separation, tended to promote a continuation of the marriage and that while the wife's interest in the real property could be terminated if the husband filed suit for divorce, it was equally true that she could at any time avoid liability on the note by filing such a suit herself.

Holdings:

            The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Agreements between husband and wife relating to the adjustment of property rights, even though in contemplation of divorce, are not violative of established public policy unless collusive or made to facilitate a separation or to aid in procuring a divorce. Where the consideration for the promise of one party is the promise of the other party, there must be absolute mutuality of engagement, so that each party has the right to hold the other to a positive agreement. Both parties must be bound, or neither is bound.
