    Yoo!!

    Unlike problem questions an answer to a discussion cannot be given in TSR. I'd suggest you searched through westlaw journals for the relationship between consideration and PE. Treitel also has some interesting things to say on the subject.

    But first, do you understand what consideration and PE are?

    For a contract to stand there must be some sort of consideration. The consideration must be recognized in law. To stop whining therefore cannot be consideration. Now, this rule never changes for the original formation of a contract. If however there was a modification to the original contract through an ancillary or collateral contract, there are instances where the requirement consideration can be circumvented through promissory estoppel. For a judgement that explains promissory estoppel clearly check out Denning in High Trees.

    Again man it is impossible to answer your question in TSR unless someone goes to do the research and writes the essay for you. People struggle with problem questions because they can't spot the issues of law. In your case they're pretty clear! Go do some work!
