The contributions to the marriage do not need to be in terms of income or property.
The value of services for rearing children and running the household, or for contributing to the spouse’s career or a business, should also be considered.
Each party is a partner to a marriage and thus “each partner is entitled to a fair share of the fruits of their combined industry, whether performed in the office, the factory, the fields or the home.” Neff v. Neff, 386 So.2d 318, 319 (Fla. 2d DCA 1980).
The expert testimony of an economist, however, may be needed to establish the value of other contributions.
