In summary, all assets acquired during the marriage (including assets acquired during pre-marital cohabitation as if married) are shared equally. In certain circumstances there may be an unequal division for fairness reasons. Invariably this is to provide for the additional needs of one spouse, and in particular the primary carer for any children. All other assets, non-marital assets, are not shared at all unless, again, required for fairness reasons, primarily the needs of one spouse.
Sometimes nonmarital assets are mixed and mingled with marital assets and therefore may become marital assets themselves and subject to the starting point of automatic equal division. Sometimes nonmarital assets grow in value during a marriage, without any specific involvement of either spouse e.g. through market forces, and this passive growth may sometimes be treated as a marital asset.
Gifts, inheritances and some post-seperation assests are treated as non-marital.
