LAW REPORT.
lMlrhetmss, .tarm s6 Gro. Ill.
COaatTr alaVi B*lON POulrITZ, and Wlr.
T HIS wa an stion in mruft of udemint, and the
cafe wan as follows:-The defendant's wife had
formerly been the wife of Lord Percy, from whom fhe
had been separated, and wal allowed a fepaate main.
raiac by deed. During the time of her fo living
iparate, te was delirous of receiving money by annul-
tie, and the plaintiff ername bound asher security for
the payment of one of thofe nnuities, at the fame time
taking her bond to indemnify him. Her nmriage with
Lord Percy wa afterwards diffolved by o& of Parlia-
aent, and her fepuate maintenance, to the almult of
JooI. a year confirmed to her. ahe afterwards mar.
tied the defendant, and having failed in paying the
anuity, the plaintiff wa called upn for it, and having
id it, brought this a&ion on her bond to be reim-
bured. The defendants pleaded the generall iflue, and
there wasa verdiAt lor th plaintiff. The quefion was,
whether the plaintiff could recover ? The defendant
(the wife) at the time of entering into the bond being
a femme covert.
Mr. Wood and Mr. Lee for the plaintiff.-The
fogle quellion is, whether a femme covert, living
separate and apart from her hulb nd, and having a
competent provision aut maintenance secured to her by
deed, is bound by any undertaking lite may make; if
fhe it, it will follow that her fubfequrnt nlarriatre
makes no difference. This has been fttled in the late
cafes of Rinlftled againfl Lady L.nciboruugh, and
Barwell against Brooks, in this Court; both which
cafesdctermined, that a femme convert Is in fuch cafc,
bound, and may be reroverd against. hlie reason of
the thing, and the inconveniencies otherw:fe eartfig,
plead ilrongly for this exception to the general rule,
that a femme cover cannot bind herfelf.
Mr. Bearcroft, Mr. ErIkine, and Mr. Lawe for the
defendant.-T'he present quellinn i new, and moll
effentially different from all the modern caes relied on.
It is a qucition of general exLelt, involving important
cotfequencec. The general rurl of law i-, that the
contracts if married women arc tni;rely and ahfulutc!v
void, on the principle that the has no property of her
own. Modern times have intr, duccd separate main-
tenane,. which the decency anl virtue of our ancellors
never dreamt of. There give the wile a property, hut
only for certain purpoles, viz. fur the fipply of nccYf-
fari.s, and no other,, not for the purpolit of eitnrva.
gance. That the present cares, if allowed, 1s giving a
Sfemme covert, who has a liparate ninitenance. the
power of ruiinig herfclf, as fi- may make away with
her whole allowance. That the. cafe already decided
had gone o further, and that an extcnfion of the rule
night be attended with the moRl dangerous cunfe-
quences.
Lord Mantfeld-The debt here contradred was for
the benefit of the dcfendalit's wife. he was feiarate,
living a a single woman, to all intents and purpofe,.
The dett wl.ich is now due iI a mAl, mer;tor a o one;
for the ets the plaintiff to be hLr fccurity, and he is
damnified. He considered her as a fe/riefe. There
can be no doubt hut in jflice the oi ght to pay thi
loney, and in. emnify the plaintiff. But counter to
*his, there in a rule of politive law ; and to be fura it is '
better that a p neral rule Ihould tike place, thin the I
cafe rf an individual, however hard that rule may bear t
upon him. The general rule is, that (he has no pro-
perty; her contradisare merely and ontiverfally toid. f
THer contract, even for nccellarisr, is not her's,
but her hufband's-lhe cannot be fuedl--he cannot be
taken in execution-Her hulband mulld aifwer for her
debts contrtaded previous to her nmariage future the d
can contra& none, by the general rule ot law.-Nlw i
cufloma have made exe options nrceffary, and from
Juice andconvenience, different rulshave been adopt.
ed. The qeftieon then is, whether this is fuch a cafe a
as to demand an exception from the general rule Cafes
have arifen when the husband wasbanilied or exiled.
What ha the Court faid ? It isjuE fie should pay, and
injuftice will arife if the doe, not. The cafe of trani- a
portation next arofe-che fame exception was allowed, n
though the absence of the husband was only for a term S
of year. Separate maintenance is a cafe unknown to t
cur anceflor, and by which married women become to r
all intcont for their benefit asfinr. fo. The ancient t
aw had no idea o this; but the Court hat laid it is utl
that the husband food not in loch cafe e lia le. fi
No diainfion'hsl been attempted to Iliew, that if the e
defendant's wife i liable, he himfilf is not. Nor do I i
think the e can. The tingle question then is, whether i
any married woman, living separate from her husband,
ad having a separate maltenean.e fecured by deed, o
conduding herftf, and having credit, as an unmarried
woman; ca be recovered aganf for debts contract "
by !.er I ais opinion that fhei may, and that having f
tade this contra&, he ill not be at liberty to fay
ice is not Hblto to b c ldto perform it. I am h
