Congress revised the Dawes Act several times after 1887 to correct problems. The most significant change, except for leasing, was the allotment of land to both husbands and wives instead of only to heads of families. The new law was needed to prevent wives and their children from being dispossessed when couples divorced. This change was made part of the leasing legislation of 1891. See ibid., 112.
