The definition of implied covenant is, “parties cannot intentionally or purposely do anything which will destroy or injure the other party’s right to receive the fruits of the contract” (Anderson, 2012, p. 1). If the contract that Sharon’s 17 year old son signed with Don requires that they do continue to do business with him it is a possibility that the contract may be legal, based on the laws of their state. Minor’s capacity to contract Legally binding arrangements when it comes to contacts there are people that have the lack of legal liability. Minors are placed in a special category and if they sign a contract the agreement is considered voidable by them. Voidable means that the person that signed the contract, that lacks the capacity to enter into a contract, can void the contract or go ahead with the contract. Since Sharon’s 17 year old son is considered a minor in most states he would be considered to have the lack capacity to make a contract. Since there is not much information about the contract and or state, it seems as though the contract that the 17 year old signed can be voided. Fraud in the execution of a contract Sec. 229.

The law of contract requires that there must also be evidence of an intention to create legal relations between the parties. However it is usually held that the decision is against the intention for an agreement domestic in nature to be legally binding, such as in the case of Cohen v Cohen where an agreement between family members that may be morally binding will not necessarily create a lawfully binding contract. However there are exceptions to this. When both parties show an intention to enter a legally binding arrangement and it would be unreasonable for one party to revoke their decision, the arrangement holds evidence of a possible contract.

He may also feel that the contact was breached and he is owed restitution. Marshall in this disagreement should first attempt to resolve this dispute without pursuing any legal action. He could use his faith and biblical teachings, to show errors of ways. He could argue the contract unenforceable due to fraud and inept execution, if he must rely on legal relief. The business relationship is best suited to be served also. The common law duty is to always act in good faith. Good faith performance is an implied agreement in nearly every contract in American common law jurisdictions (Burton, 1980). In the contract in question the promise was made, upholding an expectation of receiving the terms agreed upon in the contract. The issue is to act in good faith or to enforce the law. Marshall can secure not only supply, price, but also control of the benefits earned by his supplier. From a legal aspect, Marshall has acted in bad faith. A minor capacity to sign a contract is the bad faith act on Marshall’s part.
