De futuro is a Latin term that means "regarding the future" or "at a future time." It was often used in reference to a promise of marriage that was not binding if it mentioned marriage at a future date.

One example of de futuro is a promise between two people to get married in five years. This promise is not legally binding because it is referring to a future event.

This is important in legal and contractual agreements because it allows for flexibility and the ability to change plans if necessary.

I have no ties except for my anxiety ridden dog I’m ready to up and move anywhere
