How to use "Dower" in context?

The woman's dower is a principal part of her estate that she can receive on the dissolution of her marriage. Accordingly, many married women in England and Wales are now entitled to a dower in their husbands' estates, regardless of whether they have ever received a penny of it. In some cases, the dower can be as much as a third or a half of the wife's net estate.

In England and Wales, the wife's dower is computed as her husband's proportionate share of her net worth at the time of marriage, provided it does not exceed £600 per couple.
