All the assets accrued during the marriage will become part of the marital pot - which includes the element of your daughter's pension that was accrued during the marriage. This does not necessarily mean that her husband will get a share of the pension, but it may mean that he gets a larger share of the other elements in the pot - though this will also depend on each party's needs, the needs of any children, the earning capacities of each party and a number of other factors under the law (see s25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 for full details).
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, it is definitely complicated and never as straightforward as most people hope it will be - there are many factors a court takes into consideration when deciding, and they will only decide when they have full disclosure from both parties on all the marital assets as well as debts.
