Whilst the courts have been examining what can be described as matrimonial assets and non-matrimonial assets, there is always a provision that the court can take into account all the circumstances of the case. So if there was no matrimonial home and if the wife was caring for children of the family, she may still be awarded some assets which were acquired by the husband after their separation. It is sensible to draw up a separation agreement when splitting, setting out what you intend to happen.
