A decree of divorce, following the terms of a prior agreement between the parties, ordered the defendant husband to assign to the plaintiff an insurance policy and pay her $105 per month as long as she remained unmarried. Later, the court upon the defendant's petition reduced the monthly allowance to $90, finding that the defendant's earnings had been diminished and that his remarriage had precipitated new family obligations and debts. Upon appeal of both parties, held, that the court had the power to modify the decree to conform to the changed conditions of the parties, and this modification did not impair the obligation of the contract on which the decree had been based.
