He wants to keep the house and 401K as separate property. Will this hurt me later on? I really am not comfortabl doing this but if I want to marry him have no other option.I recently got married and my husband had a house when I met him. He used that money from the sale of that house to purchase a larger house so that we could have a family. He did not put my name on the new house even though we are married. He has now discussed getting a prenup in case we do get divorced, so that I don't receive 50% of the house b/c I'm not entitled to it. I refuse to give him any of MY money to put into the house b/c my name is not on it. I just feel like I need to keep track of all the things I do to this house now. I feel like I'm living my life headed for divorce. Should I just keep a written record of everything or get a prenup? If I just keep a written record will that stand up in court? I do give him $1000 every month to help pay the mortage in the form of a check so that there is a record of it.
