Question: Implied in Fact Contract For six years Lee Marvin an

Implied in Fact Contract For six years, Lee Marvin, an actor, lived with Michelle Marvin. They were not married. At the end of six years, Lee Marvin compelled Michelle Marvin to leave his household. He continued to support her for another year but thereafter refused to provide further support. During their time together, Lee Marvin earned substantial income and acquired property, including motion picture rights worth more than $ 1 million. Michelle Marvin brought an action against Lee Marvin, alleging that an implied in fact contract existed between them and that she was entitled to half of the property that they had acquired while living together. She claimed that she had given up a lucrative career as an entertainer and singer to be a full time companion, homemaker, housekeeper, and cook. Can an implied in fact contract result from the conduct of unmarried persons who live together? Marvin v. ­Marvin, 18 Cal. 3d 660, 557 P. 2d 106, 134 Cal. Rptr. 815, 1976 Cal. Lexis 377 (Supreme Court of California)
