Same reason that she's entitled to half of any other assets acquired during the marriage.

I know but I find it strange to be honest. I do not get the basis for this. If you have an AuPair or Live-in nanny, you pay them less wage because you provide them with housing and food. If one maintains a spouse who does not work, shouldn't that result in a deduction of what they can take after divorce vs a spouse who actually contributed to the wealth of the family? But the law seems to work in the exact opposite way.
