No. There are exceptions such as inheritances, gifts from third parties (not from one spouse to the other); property you had before you got married but NOT the matrimonial home. The matrimonial home gets divided equally even if one spouse bought and owned it before the marriage. There are also exceptions to an equal division if the parties have been married for less than 5 years, or one spouse has recklessly depleted family assets. You will need legal advice to determine if your case falls within either of these categories and your chances of being successful.
