If I bought furniture while dating a girl then we got married and things didn't work out is the furniture mine or a marital asset ?

Anything acquired before marriage is usually separate property. Things like furniture don't have titles so it will be hard to show that it was non-marital because you commingled it. You didn't just store it in a warehouse once you got married did you?
If you really want the furniture that you bought then request that this be awarded to you in equitable distribution. Or you can make a deal that you take what you brought into the marriage and she takes whatever she brought.
