Division Of Assets In A Divorce In The U.S
Married for 30 plus years. Children grown up. If a wife feels that the marriage is not salvageable despite thirty years of trying, due to major personality and opinion differences, if she files for divorce in the US ( couple had a Nikah in Pakistan and then a civil marriage in the US), should she still expect that her assets are her own per Islamic doctrine. She worked for the last 23 years alongside her husband. Also felt she took the burden of most family and children’s upbringing needs in addition to working. Is it ok to follow Islamic law of assets distribution during divorce or should she be subject to US law ( meaning what she brought to the marriage through her job and savings, her retirement fund should be hers vs being shared with her husband upon divorce). Thank you.
