How would these pensions be split - any ideas?

Currently separated after a very short marriage of just over a year although did co-habit for a year or so previously. We have a young baby girl of 12 mths old and have been living apart for 6 mths.
We both have pensions of approx the same value and contirbutions paid in during the marriage so i am thinking that will cancel out but i also have an old policy from 10 years ago from an ex-employer, it is a final salary scheme not payable for another 26 years or so worth about £50k transfer value i think.
Would my wife have a claim on this too even though it was all this time before our relationship?

Bearing in mind the very short duration of the marriage and the high admin costs of sharing pensions, I would fully expect each party to retain their own pensions in your circumstances.
