Ah, you missed the bit about divorce out of the initial question.
In a nutshell, whilst it has to declare the earnings aspart of his overall assets and income, you do not necessarily automaticallyhave an entitlement to half or all or any any pretty well.
Each case is looked at on it assets and no longer have touse separate he inherits, the less chance you have of making a claim.
Similarly, if you can be provided for adequately from allthe other assets of the marriage you have less chance of a claim.
