Abstract: Louisiana recognizes marriage as a legal relationship created by civil contract. Because marriage is created by civil contract, parties may rely on general contract principles in resolving questions unanswered by the specific laws governing marriage. Unlike ordinary contracts, however, the marriage contract “creates a social status that affects not only the contracting parties, but also their posterity and the good order of society.” Therefore, certain laws governing marriage cannot be contractually altered by the parties.
