Thanks for your response.
We got married on June 1st 2013, bought our house towards the end of Aug 2013 and started living together from October 2013.
There are no children involved.
There are no other assets held in joint names other than a joint bank account that was used to pay bills, mortgage costs etc. We have agreed to deposit an equal amount each month to cover our household costs, however my wife has now decreased her share leaving me to make good any shortfall.
My income is around £33k p.a. and my wife has advised me that her income is £30k p.a.
We also have separate credit cards. We agreed that my card was used to pay for our honeymoon and my wife's was used to buy items to furnish the house. We spent the same amount on both cards in the agreement that we pay our respective cards off, thus essentially creating it 50-50 agreement.
The outstanding debt on my card is approx £2k and my wife has informed me that her balance is £3k. I'm assuming that as these are separate credit cards we are solely liable for each of our balances? Would my wife be able to take the items from the house that were paid for via her credit card? If so am I able to request she pay half of our honeymoon costs?
Finally, we were married under islamic law (nikkah) which is recognised by Scottish law, do you know if Islamic divorce is also recognised by Scots law? Please note, as we live in Scotland I'm unsure if scots law will differ in our situation regarding joint assets/marriage etc.
