Ok thank you disregard my response to being dissatisfied
"Equitable" is that which the Court finds to be fair and reasonable under the circumstances. Note that equitable may well be something other than a 50/50 split; thus “equitable” is not necessarily “equal.” The court considers the length of the marriage, the conduct of the parties during the marriage, the age, health, station, occupation, amount and sources of income, vocational skills, employability, estate, liabilities and needs of the parties and the opportunity of each for future acquisition of capital assets and income.

Thank you very much. I bought my house in 2003 we married in 2011 may. I just am not sure if I want to continue in this marriage. For reasons of us discussing on the way that she be working before we got married as well as having a child. I've hastily made all my decisions based on my wife thinking that I didn't want to marry it have a child with her because I didn't love her enough or want a child with her. I wanted us to be better secured financialy before we made these big decisions. I feel nowthat iI am stuck. And do not want to fail as a farther to my son. Thank u again for your info
