What if spouses separate and buy property afterward?

Property acquired after the spouses physically split, but are still married, and no divorce action has been commenced, is marital property. The court will take into consideration the specific facts of this scenario in dividing property acquired under these circumstances. The division is equitable, not equal. The court will start from the premise that this property is marital.
