When two people get divorced in Texas, both spouses generally have their own idea regarding whose fault the breakup was. In some cases, though, spouses can agree on where the fault lies in a divorce, whether it is with one spouse, both spouses or no one at all. Other times, fault in a divorce is contested, with each party claiming the other was at fault. What many don't realize is that fault may be related later on to property division and each spouse's propensity for protecting assets.

As a result, there can be much confusion over how assets are divided in the state.
