Graham v. Graham
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan
33 F. Supp. 936 (E.D. Mich. 1940)
Margrethe Graham (defendant) and Sidney Graham (plaintiff) were married. Sidney had a job and wished to keep working, but Margrethe wished to travel and for Sidney to accompany her. Accordingly, the Grahams signed a contract under which Margrethe agreed to pay Sidney $300 per month until they decided to end the arrangement. Effectively, the result of the contract was that Sidney would quit his job, travel with Margrethe, and be paid by Margrethe for doing so. Subsequently, the Grahams were divorced. Sidney brought suit, seeking enforcement of the contract.
