T.A. Hall deeded certain property to his wife, Betty Hall (plaintiff). The deed granted Betty a fee simple absolute, but on the condition that the deed would be void as to Betty if T.A. died and Betty married someone else. The deed provided that if this situation occurred, the property would go to T.A.’s children. After T.A. died, Betty conveyed the property in fee simple absolute to Ronnie and Randall Dixon (plaintiffs). Betty was still unmarried at the time. Opal Hall (defendant), one of Betty’s daughters-in-law, questioned the conveyance. Betty and the Dixons filed a petition for a declaratory ruling that the conveyance was valid. Opal contended that the Dixons’ title was still contingent on Betty not remarrying. The chancery court ruled in favor of Betty and the Dixons. The court of appeals affirmed. Opal appealed.
