§48-29-202. Presumption of gift in certain transactions between husband and wife.
Where one spouse purchases real or personal property and pays for the real or personal property, but takes title in the name of the other spouse, the transaction, in the absence of evidence of a contrary intention, is presumed to be a gift by the spouse so purchasing to the spouse in whose name the title is taken: Provided, That in the case of an action under the provisions of article seven of this chapter wherein the court is required to determine what property of the parties constitutes marital property and equitably divide the same, the presumption created by this section does not apply, and a gift between spouses must be affirmatively proved.
