how do you work out cash gained during marriage?
BIL marred he had about £25k in his account
he paid for everything, put down £15k deposit on a flat, gave his wife £10k to invest in a property in china (she didn't) paid all bills. he now has about £12k in his account. obviously some of that money he's saved during the time as hes put a lot out. but since hes paid everythin how do you work it out?
Under Scottish law the money would form part of the pot given the way it was acquired and used . In modern marriages it doesn't matter who contributed what, the pot (including pensions) is shared 'fairly,' usually equally.
