Excerpt from Marriage Rites, Customs, and Ceremonies of All Nations of the Universe
The British courts of law have of late years enforced a strong object of proteo tion to the delicacy and affection of lovers. They will not suffer the ties of courtship to be torn asunder with impunity, rightly esti mating that this species of semi-marriage, iflong continued, is also for better or worse. Wherever the case is honestly made out, that truth and constancy have been violated, that gain or libertinism has broken the assurances of marriage, they have awarded ample damages, and confirm ed the equitable doctrine, that a breach of promise is a breach of trust - to the female, indeed of the highest importance, since, independently of the pungent feelings of disappointment, her future happiness and prosperity may be blended with it.-a groom, upon this principle, recently ob tained damages from a young woman, who had rejected him in consequence of an un expected acquisition of property.
