Anytime a couple divorces, marital property needs to be divided.  Typical assets would include a home, cars, bank accounts, furniture, investment accounts and retirement accounts, including things like 401K accounts and pensions and annuities.  One important thing to remember about marital property is that it is a legal term and refers to any property that was acquired during the marriage and it does not matter in whose name the property may be titled.  Additionally, Maryland does not automatically divide marital property 50/50.  Rather, the division is an equitable one but not necessarily exactly an equal division.  Property issues can be difficult ones to resolve and can also be difficult to value, and often requires the use of financial experts to properly identify and value such assets.
