# Reciprocal promises

According Sec 2(f) Promises which form the consideration or a part of the consideration for each other are called reciprocal promises. In other words, it is a promise in exchange for a promise.

Note: In case of reciprocal promises, each party to the contract is a promisor as well as a promisee.

Example

Deepthi and Deepak promised to marry each other. These are reciprocal promises. In this case, Deepthiâ€™s promise is the consideration for Deepakâ€™s promise and vice versa.
