That depends on many factors. Which spouse works? Which one has sole/primary custody of the child? Which one is the primary financial contributor to the household? Who purchased the vehicle (or was it given by a family member or friend)? What is the necessity of the vehicle for both parties? What state do you live in? How long have you been married? Was the vehicle a pre-marriage purchase by one party, or was it bought by both after being married? There really is no single answer to that question. It's a matter of the court's discretion and is based on many different factors.

Do you have to have insurance if you have a drivers license but do not own vehicle?

In most situations, the insurance follows the vehicle, therefore, if you don't have a vehicle you would not have a need to have insurance. You still have the responsibility to make sure that any vehicle that you do drive is insured. If you borrow someone's car and drive it, you have the care, custody, and control of the vehicle and you are legally responsible to make sure it has the legally required coverage. If you drive an uninsured vehicle, you will be ticketed.
