Given the pleadings, it is perhaps instructive to underscore what this marital property application is not about. This is not a case where the non-bankrupt spouse (the wife) seeks under the marital property regime a greater share of any remaining marital assets by reason of greater exposure to marital debt because of the other spouse’s (the husband’s) bankruptcy.
