How would a loan from one spouse to another be handled in family court?

Question Details: I used money from a prenuptial savings account to loan my wife $18,000 to purchase a new vehicle. We had a verbal agreement and she agreed to pay me back $250 per month to repay the savings account. She made 2 payments then refused additional payments. We are getting a divorce. The vehicle is worth less than the loan amount due to depreciation and age. In your opinion, how would the courts view this situation?
