Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • An agreement between husband and wife is void when its general purpose or specific object is to encourage or facilitate separation or divorce. But marital property settlements entered into by competent parties upon valid consideration for lawful purposes are favored in the law and such will be enforced unless their illegality is clear and certain. Consequently, agreements between spouses dealing with a division of property, even though in contemplation of divorce, are valid unless part of a scheme to effect a separation or to obtain a divorce by collusion.
