The house is worth 550K, mortgage is 270K,
I have 300K worth of other assets, she has 30K
Bare in mind this has not been close to a normal marriage in that seperate lives have been led specially in the last few years and only stayed under the same roof due to financial reasons and / she would not leave easily
Most has come from the last 5 years of my business (consulting) where I have had a good run and through this I was able to purchase 2 more properties making a total of 3. Not only was all assets through my own finances but all time and effort most weekends and nights searching properties, managing the mortgages, finances, handling the rental etc. Her on the other hand have been contributing not only nothing to the asset accumalation but none to the cost of running the household, including all costs such as private health insurance, bills etc less the odd tesco shop should would buy. We have essentially been living seperate lives but under the same roof. The prolonged marriage has only meant she is legally married whilst my wealth has built up but in reality actually separated.
