Siegel v. Siegel
241 N.J. Super. 12, 13, 574 A.2d 54 (N.J. Super. Ct. Ch. Div. 1990)

Issue: Do casino gambling losses ($227,850) incurred pre-complaint, but when the marriage was irreparably fractured, fall within the matrimonial “pot” as a credit to distributable assets, or does it equate with a “dissipation” of funds to be borne solely by the one who placed the family treasury at risk?

Holding:
The debt belongs to the gambler, without offset or credit.
