Does a Spouse Give Up Rights to Personal Property if He or She Moves Out?

A person does not give up his or her property rights because of a move to a new location. So in most instances, a spouse would not lose ownership claim to items like furniture, clothing, jewelry, electronics, etc. simply for moving out of the residence.
