In a divorce, the court divides all assets and divides them equally. In some cases, the court will order the sale of all assets. A business is a mixed concept in the sense that it may be an asset- meaning that it could be sold to someone who will then operate it- but it is also income. Depending on your situation- and there are too few facts here to make any conculsions- it might be in both of your best interests for the business to continue to run because it provides a source of income.
I am also unclear what you mean by "forcing the sale of the home". Only a court can "force" something- by ordering it.
It would be in your best interest to consult with an attorney about your rights to the home, business and income.
