<form class="form" id="custom-form" method="post" autocomplete="off">
   <fieldset class="fieldset">
       <legend class="legend"><span><?php echo __('Personal Information') ?></span></legend><br>
        <div class="field required">
            <label for="email_address" class="label"><span><?php echo __('Email') ?></span></label>
            <div class="control">
                <input type="email" name="email" id="email_address" value="" title="<?php echo __('Email') ?>" class="input-text" data-validate="{required:true, 'validate-email':true}">
   <div class="actions-toolbar">
        <div class="primary">
            <button type="submit" class="action submit primary" title="<?php  echo __('Submit') ?>"><span><?php echo __('Submit') ?></span></button>

<script type="text/javascript">
], function($){
   var dataForm = $('#custom-form');
   dataForm.mage('validation', {});
