“Does he get to decide for both of us what property he keeps and what property I keep?”

    Question:  My husband and I have been separated for a while now.  We haven’t decided if we are going to get a divorce.  Can my husband keep coming over to my home demanding to pick up property?  Every so often he wants something else and all of it is something that we bought together.  Does he get to decide for both of us what property he keeps and what property I keep?
