  • Notes 
    • What is a Marriage Settlement The basic answer is: when a man and woman married, the law considered the wife's legal identity to be absorbed into her husband's, this meant that everything a woman owned before her marriage became the property of her husband, to dispose of as he pleased. This did not change until the Married Women's Property Act of 1882 that married women were given the same property rights as single women. Marriage settlements, which were essentially prenuptual agreements, were the means that parents and guardians used to circumvent this problem. The settlement would set up a separate trust for the wife and guarentee her access to certain amounts of funds during her husband's life and after his death. Exact terms would be negotiated and contracted out by the parties involved and could include other provisions as well. This way a father could prevent a profligate son-in-law from spending all his money and leaving his daughter destitute.
