  Betrothal
The betrothal is a promise of future marriage, and hence it differs from the marriage contract itself, which deals with that state as in the present.
Hence, a marriage contracted between the male party to a betrothal and the mother, sister, or daughter of the other party; and, vice versa, between the woman and the father, brother, or son of the man, would be null and void.
Betrothal in England was once a legal bar to matrimony with another; at present the only legal remedy for the violation of the betrothal is an action for breach of promise.
