Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-How old are you both?-What assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are your respective incomes?
Thank you. Just a bit more information:

-Does he have a pension, if so what is the value?
Hi, this question remains open. Please could you provide the requested information so that I can assist you.
Thank you for confirming. On divorce, you will need to consider coming to a financial settlement so that there can be a clean break between you as even after divorce you are at risk of him pursuing a financial relief application against you which can only end by a court approved settlement or upon his remarriage.
Specifically in relation to the pensions, you will both need to exchange full and frank financial disclosure, which will include the pension values - your providers have to provide this to you upon request. If the pensions are vastly different and you are unable to maintain yourself upon retirement, you can apply to court to share his pension and a court will likely agree that equalisation of pensions would be appropriate given your ages and the length of the marriage.
