If I have an affair before we separate do I get less relationship property?
Relationship property is split on a 50/50 basis unless extraordinary circumstances can be found that make the equal sharing of property or money repugnant to justice. Extraordinary circumstances are difficult to prove and misconduct is not included under this. For misconduct to be considered under another provision it must be gross and palpable. Affairs are not considered under this.
