Commuunity Property v. Separate Property

Community Property v. Separate Property

America has two main systems for determining ownership of property at the time death – community property system and separate property system. In a community property system, a husband and wife are considered to own property jointly. A truly liberal system of dividing property between the worker and moocher equally; ironically, this system is practice mainly in conservative red states. On the other hand, the much more conservative separate property system is practice by liberal states. I guess that is one of the weird ironies of life.
