Can one spouse take entire property tax and mortgage deductions in community state (California) ?

First time, we are filing married filing separately status .  somewhere I read that for community state - california, both the spouses have to take 50-50 deductions .  Is it compulsory to take 50-50 ?  can one spouse take 100% deduction of property tax and mortgage  and another spouse take 0 ?  

Is there a step-by-step guide with examples  of married filing separately ?
