§56-8-3. Marriage of female party.
The marriage of a female plaintiff or defendant shall not
cause a suit or action to abate, but, upon affidavit or other proof
of the fact the suit or action shall proceed in the new name, but
if the marriage be not suggested before judgment, the judgment
shall be as valid, and may be enforced in like manner, as if no
such marriage had taken place.
