A and B in 1912 entered into a written contract of separation in which B, the wife of A, gave up her marital rights and A promised to pay to her $75 per month thereafter. Six years later B orally agreed to reduce the payments to $25 per month. B accepted the reduced payments for a period of twelve years. B then brought suit for $10,000, asserting that there was no consideration for the modified agreement. Held, that the modified agreement was executed and would not be disturbed for want of consideration. Vigelius v. Vigelius, (Wash. 1932) 13 Pac. (2d) 425.
