In law, consent is specifically used for the voluntary agreement or tolerance of an elderly person who is not subject to coercion or coercion and who generally has knowledge or understanding. Age is the age of consent, the age at which a person is legally competent to obtain consent. Eighteen is the standard age of consent in the United States. Since the 1500s, compact has been used in English to designate an agreement or contract between two or more parties. It is derived from Latin compactum (“agreement”), a noun using compactus, the participatory past of compacisci (“making an agreement”) that binds the prefix com (“together”) to pacisci (“to be agreed or agreed”). Pascisci is also the source of the pact, a precedent synonymous with compact. The word covenant is often associated with Christian and Jewish religions. In the Old Testament, it refers to agreements or treaties between peoples or nations, but above all the promises that God has promised to humanity (for example. B the promise to Noah never again to destroy the earth by flooding, or the promise made to Abraham that his descendants will multiply and inherit the land of Israel). The revelation of God`s law to Moses on Mount Sinai created a pact between God and Israel, known as the Sinai Covenant. The law was inscribed on two panels and, in biblical times, it was housed in a golden wooden box known as the Ark of the Covenant.
The word also has a verbal meaning: “to promise or reach a formal agreement.” You will find an example in Holmes` quote at the convention (above). Since the beginning of the 14th century, borrowing has been used for different types of “binding” agreements or alliances, such as “the bonds of sacred marriage.” Later, this meaning was generalized to each element or “binding” force as “the bond of friendship.” In the law of the sixteenth century, it became the name of an act or other legal instrument that “binds” a person to pay a sum of money due or promised. In the 17th century, the cartel referred to a written agreement between the warring nations, particularly for the treatment and exchange of prisoners. This use is illustrated by Bishop Gilbert Burnet in his story of his own time (1734): “Thanks to a cartel that had been established between the two armies, all prisoners had to be redeemed at a certain price and within a limited time.” The French word derives from the Latin compromisesum, itself related to the former compromitters (promittere means “promise”). In English, compromit was once used as a synonym for the compromised verb in its outdated sense, “to be linked by mutual agreement” and in the modern sense “to cause disability.” “At the end of the day, it is the clubs that will decide, but we have seen the will to make changes and the realisation that Scottish football is demanding a new dawn, and we now have an agreement to take over the clubs for a single league.
