Can I sell marital property prior to a divorce?

Question Details:

My spouse abandoned our home almost a year ago. She took with her all of her clothing, lots of kitchen items, some furniture and her jewelry except for her wedding rings which she left for me as a sign that we were through. I am struggling to pay the mortgage and boat payments and I would like to sell the boat, the wedding rings and some other property to keep from losing my home. When she found out about the sale she told me that I couldn’t sell anything. What can I sell and not sell if anything? Currently neither of us has filed for a divorce yet.
