I think this may be state specific to Oklahoma but I am not sure. If a couple is married, do they both have to sign the mortgage not matter what kind of real estate? I know is they are purchasing a home then they would both have to sign. What if they are putting up 100 acres of farmland they already own as collateral, would they both have to sign the mortgage? One more, what if they were purchasing 100 acres of farmland, could only the husband sign the mortgage or is the wife required to do so as well.
