Short Note On Agreement In Restraint Of Marriage

Conjugal intermediation contracts, distinct from agreements limiting marriage, are defined as contracts by which a third person is paid to negotiate, obtain or obtain a marriage. It can be noted here that marriage intermediation has been widespread, at least among Hindus, in pre-independent India, as stated in the Hindu law of the agreement limiting trade under section 27 of the act. In other words, any agreement that prevents a person from starting or continuing his profession against a paid counterparty is nullity. Therefore, any agreement that prevents a person from acting as he wishes or where he wishes is called an agreement with another party in which the other party benefits from the cessation of his trade or profession as an agreement to restrict trade. . . .
