MOBLEY, Justice.

The question for determination in this case is whether that part of Code § 105-2003 authorizing the jury to consider the "worldly circumstances of the parties" in tort actions where "the entire injury is to the peace, happiness, or feelings of the plaintiff," violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States (Code § 1-815).
