vs.
CARLOS EUGENE GREEN

Court:TCA

MARILYN L. GREEN, pro se
Trenton, Tennessee

L. L. HARRELL, JR.
HARRELL & HARRELL
Trenton, Tennessee
Attorney for Appellant                          

Judge: HIGHERS

First Paragraph:

In this divorce action, the trial court awarded Marilyn Green (the
"Wife") a divorce from Carlos Green (the "Husband") upon the grounds
of inappropriate marital conduct.  Pursuant to a property settlement
agreement, the parties agreed to sell the marital home by auction, pay
the remaining indebtedness on the home and divide the proceeds
equally.  The parties agreed that the Wife would receive a Mercury
automobile, a Ford Thunderbird automobile, the furniture, household
furnishings and real estate located in the Eaton community.   The
parties agreed that the Husband would receive the farming equipment,
guns, saddles and two pickup trucks. The trial court divided the
remainder of the parties' property and awarded the wife a one-half
interest in the Husband's retirement income and awarded the Husband a
one-half interest in the Wife's retirement income.  The court further 
awarded each party a one fourth interest in a fifty-seven acre tract
of land in the Eaton community and awarded each party a one-sixth
interest in twenty acres of corn planted as of the date of the final
divorce hearing.  The court further ordered that the livestock owned
by the parties be sold and the proceeds divided equally.  The Husband
has appealed the judgment of the trial court arguing that the trial
court's division of property was improper.  For the reasons stated
hereafter, we reverse the judgment of the trial court as to the Wife's
interest in a fifty-seven acre tract of land in the Eaton community
and affirm as to the Wife's interest in twenty acres of planted corn.
