My wife? Separate bank account, her money was her money. I was stunned at one time when looking for a birth certificate to stumble across her savings account with a building society. I knew absolutely nothing about it.
I didn’t think on “you owe me”. But I did come to think that my wife felt so “entitled” and that made her a very ungrateful person.
I’m struggling with my conscience at the moment. My wife is due a reasonable inheritance. I understand that the financial side of a divorce can take that into account, in the same way a spouses pension can be taken into account. Do I go for half that inheritance, or do I leave it alone. My gut is telling me to go for it. Not to be the same old Bob, generous and accommodating.
Hate to break the news to ya Bob, Inheritances given to one spouse and never mixed with maritial money are seperate property at least here anyways.
