A property owned by Individuals either before or during the Marriage doesn’t always become joint properties, these all depends on the reasons of the party purchasing the property. If such property is one purchased before the marriage and the purchaser did not bring it to the knowledge of the wife or husband, or if its known to such spouse, was never used for any family purposes, such property remains a personal property of the spouse who had purchased it. Where the property was purchased during the marriage but without the knowledge of the other party, such property cannot be construed as a matrimonial property or a jointly owned property as enunciated by the Honourable Court in Adaku Amadi v. Edward N. Nwosu and many other judicial decision. This thesis is a thorough paper making bear through principles laid down by Supreme Court Authorities the RIGHTS of individuals in a marriage to separately own properties notwithstanding those properties were purchased before or during the marriage.
