The marital assets would be divided equally regardless of your wife's higher salary and marital fault.

In Arizona the court evenly divides community property. Fault is not considered. Which spouse earned the community property is not considered. Debt is divided according to the same principles.

I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have.
