discharge The termination of an obligation, such as occurs when the parties to a contract have fully performed their contractual obligations.
performance The fulfillment of one’s duties under a contract—the normal way of discharging one’s contractual obligations.
condition A qualification, provision, or clause in a contractual agreement, the occurrence or nonoccurrence of which creates, suspends, or terminates the obligations of the contracting parties.
condition precedent A condition in a contract that must be met before a party’s promise becomes absolute.
condition subsequent A condition in a contract that, if it occurs, operates to terminate a party’s absolute promise to perform.
concurrent conditions Conditions that must occur or be performed at the same time—they are mutually dependent. No obligations arise until these conditions are simultaneously performed.

impossibility of performance A doctrine under which a party to a contract is relieved of his duty to perform when performance becomes objectively impossible or totally impracticable.
commercial impracticability A doctrine that may excuse the duty to perform a contract when performance becomes much more difficult or costly due to forces that neither party could control or contemplate at the time the contract was formed.
frustration of purpose A court-created doctrine under which a party to a contract will be relieved of his duty to perform when the objective purpose for performance no longer exists (due to reasons beyond that party’s control).
