People instinctively hate lawyers, or at least scorn them, make fun of them, blame them for all that plagues the world etc. But it is the very people who make up society that employ them.

she and [Lee Marvin] "entered into an oral agreement" that while "the parties lived together they would combine their efforts and earnings and would share equally any and all property accumulated as a result of their efforts whether individual or combined." Furthermore, they agreed to "hold themselves out to the general public as husband and wife" and that "plaintiff would further render her services as a companion, homemaker, housekeeper and cook to ... defendant."
Today, it seems the contracts are written.
