A “gentlemen`s agreement” is an agreement that is not legally applicable and must be “only honorably binding”.    On the other hand, domestic and social agreements such as those concluded between children and parents are generally not applicable on the basis of public policy. For example, in the English case Balfour v. Balfour, a husband, agreed to give his wife £30 a month when he was not at home, but the court refused to enforce the agreement when the husband stopped paying.
