The whole, in contradistinction to, a moiety or part only. When land isconveyed to husband and wife, they do not take by moieties, but both are seised of theentirety. 2 Kent, Comm. 132; 4 Kent, Comm. 302. Parceners, on the other hand, havenot an entirety of interest, but each is properly entitled to the whole of a distinctmoiety. 2 Bl. Comm. 188.The word is also used to designate that which the law considers as one whole, andnot capable of being divided into parts. Thus, a judgment, it is held, is an entirety, and,if void as to one of the two defendants, cannot be valid as to the other. So, if a contractis an entirety, no part of the consideration is due until the whole has been performed.
