“When my spouse and I started living together, I owned a condo. During our four-year relationship, we bought some things together and racked up some credit card debt. We just separated a month ago. I learned that we each get to keep what we brought into the relationship. We’ll share paying off the debt and dividing up the stuff we got together during our relationship. Now, we’re making a separation agreement — so far, so good.”
– Bruno, Nelson, BC
