Discretionary review was granted in Rice v. Rice, a 2-1 unpublished opinion of the Court of Appeals affirming classification of debt as marital and dividing it equally.  The husband had amassed $65,000 in debt for the benefit of the parties’ adult son, some of which was for luxuries, all without the knowledge of his wife. When she learned of the debt and other monies transferred to their son, she took over the finances and threatened divorce. She filed for divorce after her husband opened yet another credit card for their son’s use.
