What happens to retirement funds and 401(k) plans in a same-sex divorce?

In Florida, the laws of equitable distribution apply to same-sex divorces, as well as heterosexual divorces. So any asset or liability that was acquired from the date of the marriage, to the date of the filing of the divorce, that would be considered the marital estate and there is a presumption that anything acquired during the marriage would be divided in half.
