Definition of "Tenancy by the entirety"

Ownership of property by a husband and wife together; the law views the couple as one person. This can have a bearing on insurance claims. For example, if the wife willfully destroys property, her husband's claim may be denied by an insurer on the grounds that he is not separate from his wife for insurance purposes, and this constitutes destruction by the insured. Contrasts with TENANTS IN COMMON.
