Please decide what laws apply.
A man and a woman meet, and soon after, in presence of a witness, one proposes marriage. The other accepts. The couple meets the requirements of capacity.
A few weeks later, a no-fault situation caused the couple to not see each other again for more than 4 years. They have not broken off the engagement, and they are on amicable terms with each other. Was consideration a necessity of forming the oral contract? If the contract was a legal oral contract of engagement, and is neither fulfilled, breached or revoked, is it still valid, or is it made invalid by the amount of time which has passed?
