Hot, hot, hot, Hyman!

Promises are made to be broken, therefore the contract laws provide the
remedies.

The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach" which
*encourages* breach of (enforcable) obligations if it's economically
efficient to do so. Compliance with contract obligations is almost
always voluntary -- if you choose not to comply, then you don't have to.
You merely have to compensate the non-breaching party for his expectancy
interest. Hint: damages.
