Can I keep something that was my spouse's before our marriage?

Ohio is an equitable distribution state, meaning that assets each spouse gathered during the marriage are marital except in cases of a prenuptial agreement stating otherwise or in some cases of financial misconduct. Assets such as inheritances or property that one spouse owned before the marriage may also be exempt from marital property.
