Wife’s right of entry into land not barred by certain judgments; when she may defend her right in lands which are her inheritance

A woman shall not be barred of her right of entry into land by a judgment in her husband’s lifetime by default or collusion, but after his death may prosecute the same by any proper suit; or, in the lifetime of the husband, if he will not appear, or, against his wife’s consent, will render the wife’s lands during the coverture in a suit against the husband and wife for lands which are her inheritance, the wife may come at any time before judgment, and defend her right.
