ENGAGEMENTS TO MARRY
Wherein They regally Differ JTroni AU
Other Kinds of Contracts
It mny well bo doubted whether younjf
m n Kencrnlly In this state appreciate the
tnie condition ot tho law in Tespcctj of Im
plied engagements of taarringo A recent
breach ot promise suit In Ohcnango coun
ty Is an cxtrcmo caio on this subject and
furnishes a fresh Illustration of tholcRal
doctrine that no expressprouilae or formal
lungungo la needed In order to constitute
a contract to ranrry
Tho plalntllT in tho enso ro tvhlcb wo
refer waa introduced to tho defendant in
December lbHS lio told her ho bntl long
wished to lnako her actmalntnnco Ho
was ln tho hnblt of attendlpf tho same
church and prayer meetings as nho did
and frequently escorted hvrbomo Honlso
took her to public fntcrtaininenW Occa
sionally This wont on for nloro than two
years In tho spring of I880 tha defend
ants attentions grew mora marked and
he went homo with tha plalutliT from
church nearly every Sunday nnd Ironr
pinycr meeting nearly every Thursday
evening nnd would often go into tho hoiiao
nnd remain with her usually alone in tho
parlor tititli 10 or 11 oclock On ono oo
cnslon there was 11 conversation in refer
ence to a trip to Europe On nnolhor tho
defendnnt talked to tho plaintiff about
building a housa nnd nakedher what
building lot sho preferred
ln May 1888 tho plnlntllT toldtho de
fendant that sho had heard somebody say
tlint tho only reason ho went with lierwa
to please himself and sco how big a fool ho
could make of her She asked tho defend
ant whether thUtvastrno nntlho declared
Hint It was not saying that ho bad ad
mired bur fromhls first acquaintance with
iter nnd that ho had never mot n young
lndy whom ho regarded moro highly that
ho longed to mnko her happy unit vfould
always protect her Tha plaintiff respond
ed that sho wanted to know whether ho
was true nnd ho replied that ho had said
all lie could to aliow thftt ho vras true
adding as ho was leaving If I live I will
cinko you happy
It furthermore appeared on thotriM that
tho defendant had mora than onco told
tho plaintiff that ho did not helicvo in long
engagement nnd that tho plaintiff re
ceived po attentions or visits front other
young man during the period in which tha
dcfetidnntwas ln the habit ot visitinghor
From thrso facta tho trial court loft It
to I ho Jury to say whether or not they
would Infer that lueroTrasnn engagement
ot raarrlngo between tho plaintiff and tha
defendant Tho Jury found In favor of tho
plaintiff nnd awarded her n verdict of f3
000 which has lately been afllrniod by tho
general tcnit of tho supremo court lit tha
fourth judicial department
It wlll bo ohtcrved that tiiero vras no
suggestion or pretense ou tho part ot tha
plaintiff that tho defendant had over in
express words either promised to marry
her or nsked her to marry him Tho in
tent of tho parties was solely to bo Inferred
from their language not amounting touu
express iigrccmcnt tomnrry nnd their con
duct toward ono another
Tho leading oaso in thin stnta on tho
same subject is Hoinan against Kurlo
which nroso in HrooklynEO years ngo and
went to tho court of appeals where tho
opinion was by Chief Juiigo Church
Thnt great judge laid down thotruo
nilu applicable to such questions ns fol
lows
Contracts of marriago ore unlike nil
others They concern tho highest inter
ests ot human life and enlist tho tendcresb
sympathies of tho humnn heart nnd tha
nctn and declarations dorto and Implied by
parties negotiating them nro often corre
spondingly dcllcato nnd cmotlonnl An a
innttorot Inwtho learned jndgo was clenr
ly right In holding that no formal Inn
guagn is necessary to constitute tho con
tract of mnrrlnge If the coudtict and dec
larations of tho parties clearly Indicate
that they regard thomielves nn engaged
It Is not material by what means they hava
arrived nt that stnta
Tho Application of this rulo to tho Cho
nango county caso led tho general form to
nfilrm tho Judgment A consideration of
tho faclH upon which tho jury found In fa
vor ot thoplaintiff should suggest to young
men that If they conduct thomsolvca as
though they wero engaged thoy may bo
como defendants In breach ot promlso milts
whether thoy havo over actually said any
thing about marriage or not Now York
