Do the phrases "community property" or "equitable distribtuion of property" mean anything to you [depending on the state you are in]?

If they don't, you better find a good family law lawyer and have a frank discussion--without your fiance being there--far in advance of the marriage date.

Sounds like you are in for some real surprises, or you will be if there is a dissolution of the marriage.

I'm truely confused- You can only earn miles for flights you fly; you can't have you wife's miles deposited in your own MP account. Wouldn't that mean the wife keeps any miles she earned in her own account and the husband keeps mile he earned in his account???
