Plaintiff sued in equity to recover for services rendered to her deceased husband for a period of six years prior to her marriage to him. Defendant, the executor of decedent, contended that she could not recover the portion of her claim which represented wages earned more than six years before a claim w.as filed with the estate. Held, the statute of limitations does not run on the claim of one spouse. against the other during the continuance of the marital state, irrespective of whether the claim arose before or during coverture. Therefore, plaintiff could now recover for the six year period immediately preceding her marriage to decedent. Morris v. Pennsgrove National Bank & Trust Co., (N. J. Eq. 1934) 170 Atl. 16.
