The Land Act, after amendments, protects a spouse’s occupancy of family land and requires their consent for any transaction involving the land on which they live or use for sustenance, but does not provide for automatic co-ownership between spouses. Any decision that unconstitutionally disfavors the property rights of women and children is invalid. The Act also requires that land management mechanisms have at least 1/3 female members.
