tend to ignore a bit, or take for granted. They set it and
forget it. What I am talking about is retirement accounts.
Most people set up a 401k or are part of a pension plan, but
do not pay that close attention to it after setting it up.

divided and do not pay attention to the details. This is partly
because they were in the habit of doing that while they were
married. They just had the money taken out of their paycheck
and then did not think much about it afterwards.

situation starts to sink in. Often the retirement accounts
are the largest or 2nd largest asset in the marriage, depending on
how much equity is in the marital home. Sometimes people
