One of the biggest issues every divorcing couple must deal with is how to divide the property and financial assets you've acquired during your marriage. This can be rather easy if the marriage was short and you didn't accumulate much or if there is a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place. For most couples, however, it can be complicated.

One issue that continues to surprise couples in divorce is how the legal system handles the increase in value of an asset that was owned by one of the parties prior to marriage.
