I bought my house in 2001 & married her in 2008 we was together but then broke up several times from 2001 to 2008 then married in June of 2008. Yeah I know but I thought that marrying her would prove my love. That was my part of stepping up After 11 years & never being able to see her cell phone I had enough. Finding out she has had so many men on her social media & phone bill was disheartening to say the least It may have been OK if she hadn't lied about having them & talking to them. I have had enough & no longer can deal with the lies & distrust that has came from this. I don’t want her to take my home & she has threatened to when she hasn't put anything into the home except pictures on the wall. She basically walked through the door & brought her clothes. I don’t feel she deserves any part of my home.
If you never put your wife's name on a deed to your home, it is your separate property. However, she might in a divorce action make a claim on the house for improvements made by her-- You need to consult local counsel with all the facts and circumstances.
Best of luck.
