Married Women's Property

Proposed the elimination from the statute of laws enacted between the mid 19th century and the early 20th century to in order alter the old common law rules that limited a married woman’s legal capacity and power to own and control property. While these laws served a purpose when enacted, they came to be viewed as demeaning relics.

Statute: L. 2011, c. 115
