Married womans right over spousal property

Married womans right over spousal property
Theoretically the couple were the joint owners of the household as well as owner of other types of property. At the time of marriage husband had to solemnly declare that he would not violate the right and interest of his partner in economic matters. The joint ownership secured her numerous rites and privileges. “It invested her with an absolute right of maintenance against her husband.” Some ancient lawgivers even permitted the wife to go to Court to restore misappropriated property from her wily husband.
