Life with a Law Student: On Duress

Me: “Will you mind doing XXX, YYY,ZZZ….?”

So there I was, launching into another round of nagging at Mr. Cinical to do some general household chores like tidying up. Oh you know those stuff that irritates you when living together with a man, partly resulting from men’s higher tolerance to untidiness.  He mutters something (I’m sure it’s a swear word) under his breath while grudgingly carrying out said task.

Then,

Mr. Cinical: “Hmm, I just learnt a new term in contract law class that applies to this situation. It’s called duress. An illegitimate pressure that causes undue influence, exerted upon someone to perform an act he normally will not perform.”

Me: “It’s not illegitimate, I think we have a contract of marriage. Haha”
