Naiveté about marital assets can hurt you in divorce

Last May, we offered up a post that asked the question, "How well do you know your marital property?" It can be easy to think that over years of a marriage that you fully understand all the financial ins and outs of your spouse's and your accounts. But what all too often happens in divorce is that it turns out things are much murkier than had been imagined.
