Everything a husband and wife OWN SEPARATELY. In most cases, separate property includes:
  1. Anything you or your spouse owned prior to marriage.
  2. Anything you or your spouse inherited or received as a gift.
  3. Anything you or your spouse earned after your separation.
  4. Anything one spouse gives up in writing to the other.
