You need to file for divorce if you do not wish to remain married. As for her rights to property and assets, it is unlikely she can make any claim to the land, unless there are special circumstances. Please contact an attorney. I know myself and others offer a free initial consultation

In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.

I agree that it is unlikely that she'd be able to get part of the land, but there are some situations where that could happen. You need an attorney. If you are unable to afford one, contact the Mississippi Center for Legal Services at 1-800-498-1804 to see if they are able to assist you.
