§ 30-19-5 Powers of minor spouse.
Any minor spouse of any person who under the provisions of federal law is
eligible for housing loans and whether or not under guardianship by reason of
minority, may with the same force, effect, and validity as if he or she were
eighteen (18) years of age with full legal capacity do all that a minor veteran
is empowered to do under §§ 30-19-1 30-19-3, and without
limiting the generality of the foregoing, join with the minor veteran in the
execution and delivery of any mortgage or other instrument which may be
requisite, necessary, desirable, or incidental to the obtaining of any loan
guaranteed in part or in full under the provisions of federal law, or to the
obtaining of any loan, guaranty, or other benefit thereunder, and in that
mortgage or other instrument may release curtesy or dower in any property
described in the mortgage or other instrument.
