Waive

waive

1. A waif; a castaway.

2. A woman put out of the protection of the law. See Waive, 3, and the note.

See: Waive.

1. To relinquish; to give up claim to; not to insist on or claim; to refuse; to forego. He waiveth milk, and flesh, and all. (Chaucer) We absolutely do renounce or waive our own opinions, absolutely yielding to the direction of others. (barrow)

2. To throw away; to cast off; to reject; to desert.

3. To desert; to abandon.

The term was applied to a woman, in the same sense as outlaw to a man. A woman could not be outlawed, in the proper sense of the word, because, according to Bracton, she was never in law, that is, in a frankpledge or decennary; but she might be waived, and held as abandoned.

Origin: OE. Waiven, weiven, to set aside, remove, OF. Weyver, quesver, to waive, of Scand. Origin; cf. Icel. Veifa to wave, to vibrate, akin to Skr. Vip to tremble. Cf. Vibrate, Waif
