The rule against perpetuities does not prescribe any limit within which estates and interests must come into possession. The rule does not concern itself with provisions postponing the enjoyment of estates and interests, if those estates and interests must be vested within the proper limits1.
A limitation subsequent to an estate for life of an unborn person is not invalid under the rule so long as the vesting is not postponed beyond the perpetuity period
