Minors can avoid or disaffirm a contract
Can get out of the contract before the age of 18
But if you make a few payments and turn 18 you affirmed the contract
Necessaries are an exception (food clothing shelter) not part of contracting with a minor
Offer and acceptance + capacity to compact (being a minor is most clear cut situation)
Contract with(without) consideration
Uncle offers money if there is no drinking smoking or gambling
Benefit and detriment
Nephew has no real legal detriment because these things are illegal anyway
I agree to move back in if you give me half the house.
Must prove there is an offer and an agreement, they have the capacity, and consideration
Is that consideration? That she will agree to give him love and affection for moving back in
The courts hold love and affection is not enough to be considered consideration.
Trash collector wants an extra 10g a year because 400 more houses added to the city after there was
already a contract in place. The city pays it twice then a woman sues the city and garbage collector
