Agreement Declared To Be Void
In accordance with section 26 of the Indian Contract Act, all agreements to restrict marriage, with the exception of that of a minor, are null and void. The Romans were the first to delegitimize the agreements that hold back marriage. The basis for the nullity of agreements limiting marriage is that marriage is a sacrament and should not intervene in the institution of marriage, not even in treaties. The idea behind this provision is not to deprive everyone of the personal right to marry someone of their choice. It is important to note that, in accordance with the section “Agreements limiting the marriage of a minor”, the provisions are void. A contract becomes inoperative in the aforementioned circumstances. If a party has to cancel a contract, it may have to apply to the court for a review of the contract. The Tribunal may determine whether the contract is void or objectionable, or whether there are other remedies. Many contracts contain sections telling the parties whether or not the contract can be cancelled and how to do so. (c) The promise was to do something in person, and the promiser dies or is disabled by illness or accident. Such cases are usually seen in the practical world. The contract is only bound by the promiser and not by his representative or a third party, since the execution of the contract is based on personal skills or qualities. In such cases, the contract is cancelled if the promiser becomes ill, is disabled or even dies.
The words “to this extent”, which are contained in the provisions of article 27, are very important. These words illustrate the position of a situation in which the agreement can be divided into parts.
