Thank you for your question.
No, the separation date value of the pension(s) have to be included in the assets and a pension sharing arrangement can be reached. If you don't want to share the pension then your wife should get a correspondingly larger share of other assets to compensate.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
