Should Property Owned By A Couple Be In The Husband's Name?

A reader sent this in:
Hi TILB readers, I need your honest opinion on this.  
My sister runs a business together with her husband but the whole business is in his name. Business bank account is solely in her husband's name. She told me the other day that they recently bought some plots of land and her husband had them put in his name alone! 
Of all the things that could possibly go wrong in the future, what do you think about this arrangement please? For now, everything is perfect between them but should a wife allow her husband register a property they jointly own in his name alone?

 An explosion in the red light district of northern Nigeria’s Bauchi city has killed 10 people and injured 14 others.

Blog Reader Needs Your Advice... Urgently

Dear Laila,

 I have this problem and I want you to help me post it on your blog for fellow blog readers' friendly words of encouragement..... 
 I have this ugly and shameful scar on my right hand right from childhood (at the age of 2) through hot water, which has really disfigured my hand (wish I could snap it and send to you to see how ugly and terrible it is!). This scar right from childhood has always downtrodden my confidence and pride as I can't flaunt my hand during hand shakes with people, friends and neighbours, or eat confidently at dinners meetings, and at parties as I will always hide it, using my left hand stylishly to eat! I always avoid hand shakes! 
 Long before now, I couldn't dare wear clothes with short sleeves. I was always on long sleeve shirts or tops with long sleeves or any clothes with long sleeves, be it gown or

Bread and Butter Celebrities and Failed Marriages - Etcetera

Looks like a very long piece but Etcetera is making so much sense in his new article. This time, he has written a memo to celebrities, talking about them and their failed marriages, why it happens. Let's read if you agree with him.
If you listen to relationship programmes on radio, you would notice that many Nigerians are indeed struggling with their relationships and marriages and they are all seeking help. And because they do not have a glaring media attention serializing their issues, making judgments, giving strong commentary, poking them emotionally, there are chances of their relationships and marriages problems being solved. 
Why is it that with the fame, fortune and good looks, our celebrities’ marriages still don’t work? It has been a strange phenomenon that the union of people in the limelight hardly lasts, indeed. So the question is, why do most celebrity marriages crash frequently? 
Fame is dangerous to relationships for many reasons. Most troubling is that it demands
