Whether or not one spouse gets to keep certain assets or be obligated to pay certain expenses is a very fact-intensive inquiry. What the court does is it takes all of the assets that were accumulated during the marriage and all of the liabilities that were accumulated during the marriage, and equitably divide those assets between the parties. It depends upon the value of the assets, the amount of the liabilities, and what other assets or liabilities is placed in the column of the other spouse.
