Parties, contracts. Those who commit to doing or not doing the business and things contained in an agreement. 2. All persons may normally be contracting parties, unless they are working under a disability. 3. Consent is essential for all valid contracts, it follows that people who, first, want to understand; or second, the freedom to exercise their will cannot be a contracting party. Third, people who, because of their circumstances, are unable to enter into a particular contract. These will be subject to a separate review. 4.-Sec 1. Those who want to understand are idiots and lunatics; Drunks and toddlers, 5-1. Contracts for idiots and lunatics are binding; since they are not in a position, out of mental infirmity, to give a precise judgment on their actions; and cannot, therefore, take any commitment seriously and sufficiently into consideration. And even if the rule was once that the party could not choke itself; 39 H.

Code, Section 1778. 8.-Sec 2. Those who understand who do not have the legal freedom to exercise their will are married women; and people under duress. 9.-1.

1236; 1 H. Black. 108. A married woman does not have the original power or authority to bind her husband by one of her contracts, because of the marital relationship. A man`s responsibility for his wife`s engagement rests on the idea that they were formed by his authority; and if his consent does not appear through explicit evidence or evidence of circumstances reasonably likely to be, he is not liable.
