Are stock options that are not exercisable by the end of the marriage marital property?

New Brunswick, Canada

The following excerpt is from Miller v. Miller, 2003 NBCA 37 (CanLII):

A minority of American courts have held that stock options not exercisable by the end of the marriage are not marital property: see Hann v. Hann, 655 N.E.2d 566 (Ind.App. 1995) where the relevant legislation narrowly defines property that is subject to division.
