SECTION 197
When dower barred by jointure
Real Property (RPP) CHAPTER 50, ARTICLE 6
§ 197. When dower barred by jointure. Where an estate in real property
is conveyed to a person and his intended wife, or to the intended wife
alone, or to a person in trust for them or for the intended wife alone,
for the purpose of creating a jointure for her, and with her assent, the
jointure bars her right or claim of dower in all the lands of the
husband. The assent of the wife to such a jointure is evidenced, if she
be of full age, by her becoming a party to the conveyance by which it is
settled; if she be a minor, by her joining with her father or guardian
in that conveyance.
