Although many sources view “social and domestic agreements” as a single class, it is preferable to treat “family agreements” as a separate class from “social agreements” because it does not make a presumption and applies only to the objective test. In some cases, the parties may make their agreement “in accordance with the contract.” This raises the question of whether they intend to be linked immediately or only if a formal contract is entered into. In Masters/Cameron, the High Court identified three possible interpretations of contractual clauses [paragraph 9, page 360]: an objective approach is taken to determine whether contractual intentions exist; it did not matter if a party did not secretly intend to be legally bound if it appeared to a reasonable observer that it did. If one party has fulfilled its treaty obligations and the other party does not fulfill its share, the non-definitive liability of the other party may result in undue enrichment. Broad statements of intent, feelings or political opinions that have no clear meaning and to which the courts can react safely cannot have any legal value. The relevant category for a particular agreement depends on the intent of the parties, but terms such as “in accordance with the contract” or “subject to the preparation of a formal contract” suggest that the parties do not intend to be bound, except pending the signing of a formal contract (paragraph 13, page 363). Acceptance of an offer is the “agreement” between the parties, not the contract. In order to have a contract, the contracting parties must have the intention of establishing legal relationships. The law recognizes that these situations are comparable to gifts: transactions are made for personal reasons and not for the purpose of making a commercial profit. Most people would consider it very unusual for their family contracts to take effect. It is presumed that family agreements do not create legal relationships unless there is clear evidence to the contrary. The courts oppose agreements that, for political reasons, should not be legally applicable.  All I had to do was answer with the words “Agreed” or “Confirmed,” and I would have been legally bound.
You know what I mean by Snap? The law does not recognize any contract – or agreement – to enter into a contract in the future. It has no binding effect, because supply and acceptance do not exist. In other words, what are the terms of the offer? This agreement did not enter into force as a formal or legal agreement, and this memorandum is not written, and it is not subject to jurisdiction before the courts of the United States or England, but it is merely a concrete expression and a trace of the objective and intent of the three parties involved, to which they undertake, honourably, with confidence, on the basis of past cases, that they are of each of the three parties with mutual loyalty and friendly cooperation.
