status; refusal to receive instrument for record; recording affidavit showing marital
status; record of instrument and affidavit; effect; instrument recorded without marital
status shown; elapse of 10 years; evidence.
Sec. 1.
 
All written instruments conveying or mortgaging real estate or any interest therein, hereafter
executed, shall state whether any and all male grantors, mortgagors, or other parties executing the
instrument are married or single, and the register of deeds of the county in which the instrument is
offered for record shall refuse to receive the instrument for record unless it conforms to the
provisions of this act. If the instrument has been recorded in the office of the register of deeds of any
county without the instrument showing the marital status as herein required, an affidavit stating the
facts, executed in conformity with the provisions of Act No. 123 of the Public Acts of 1915, as
amended, being sections 565.451a to 565.453 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, may be recorded in
the register's office. Upon the recording of the affidavit showing the marital status of the male
grantor, mortgagor, or party executing, on the date of the instrument, the record of the affidavit and
the record of the instrument shall be effectual for all purposes of a legal record, and the record of the
instrument and affidavit or a transcript thereof may be given in evidence in all cases, and the
instrument shall be construed to be as valid and effectual as if it had contained a statement showing
the marital status of the male person or persons executing it.
 
If an instrument has been recorded in the office of the register of deeds of any county without the
instrument showing the marital status as herein required, and a period of 10 years has elapsed since
the recording of the instrument, the record of the instrument or a transcript thereof may be given in
evidence in all cases and shall be effectual for all purposes of a legal record and the instrument shall
be construed to be as valid and effectual as if it had contained a statement showing the marital
status of the male person or persons executing it.
