Definition of "voidable"
  1. Something that is legally permitted to be voided, typically referring to contracts or agreements. It's unlike 'void,' as it's not inherently null and depends on the actions of the person empowered to void it. For instance, a minor can void a contract once they turn 18, but they can also choose to uphold it
