Firstly let me acknowledge that spltting of assets is a complex issue and is dependant on personal circumstances. But I have never really found a satisfactory answer to the following question.
My x2b and I have no children and live in the marital home that is in my name and that I owned for 10 years before she moved in with me. We are both in good jobs and she owns a 50% stake in another property from a previous relationship. We have been married for 9 years.
My question is whether she would be entitled to 50% of all the equity in the property or just in the increase in its value over the duration of the marriage?
