Lest spouses through their mutual love should impoverish one another. • The phrase appeared in reference to the rationale for holding that donations between husband and wife were invalid. A similar phrase, ne mutuato amore invicem spoliarentur (“lest they should be impoverished by each other through their mutual affection”), was also used.
