A severable contract is a contract which includes two or more promises each of which can be enforced separately. Therefore, the failure to perform one of the promises does not actually put the promisor in breach of the entire contract. A severable contract is also known as divisible contract or several contracts. The consideration of a severable contract is susceptible of apportionment on either side, so as to correspond to the unascertained consideration on the other side, as a contract to pay a person for services provided so long as he will do certain work.
