Consideration has wider meaning in equity than in common law, and can include marriage consideration.
Trustees have a duty to enforce a contract to create a trust, contained in a marriage settlement, for the benefit of the wife and the issue of the marriage, all of whom are within the marriage consideration.
Beneficiaries can take action themselves if trustees refuse.
