Vir et uxor censentur in lege una persona. Jenk. Cent 27. Husband and wife are considered one person in law. Vir et uxor sunt quasi unica persona, quia caro et sanguis unus; res licet sit propria uxoris, vir tamen ejus custos, cum sit caput mulieris. Co. Litt 112.

Vir militans Deo non implicetur secu- laribus negotiis. Co. Litt. 70. A man fighting for God must not be involved in secular business.
