Begin researching case law, from your home state, regarding the parol evidence rule and (1) ambiguity, (2) conditions precedent, and (3) fraud.
The actual contract between Ms. Hayle and Mr. Hailz Saytum will be provided tomorrow.
Hayle and Hailz Saytun were married by the Satanic Temple in 2021, but did not have a marriage certificate filed with the state, so family law does not apply. Instead, Mr. Hailz Saytun would like to have their marriage contract void, due to conditions precedent and fraud, or, in the alternative, have the contract modified, claiming ambiguity. Ms. Halyle Saytun argues that the written contract is a complete representation of their intentions, mutually and freely agreed to, thus, fully enforceable under the parol evidence rule.
Select which ONE of the two statements you are going to defend.

Draft a five-paragraph essay supporting the statement you chose. Use this outline to organize your five paragraphs:
Introduction of the statement you chose. Discuss your analysis of each element (i.e., a very brief summary of “Body-Paragraph One, Two, and Three”).
Body Paragraph One. Explain conditions precedent by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating how the condition has been or has not been met. If conditions precedent have been met, the contract is enforceable. If conditions have not been met, the contract is void.
Body Paragraph Two. Explain fraud (as it relates to contract law) by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating the existence of fraud (causing the contract to be void) or the lack of fraud (causing the contract to be enforceable).
Body Paragraph Three. Explain ambiguity (as it applies to contractual wording) by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating ambiguity (parol evidence rule exception applies, allowing the introduction of evidence) or no ambiguity (parol evidence rule applies, barring the introduction of evidence).
Conclusion. Applying the assignment facts, discuss the likely outcome of each issue: conditions precedent, fraud, and parol evidence rule.
