That depends on the laws of your state.

I think it would still class as the marital home and therefore a shared asset but I don’t know…. I’m sure there are some lawyer bees who would know more though.

@ladyartichoke:  I believe what ladyartichoke said. We put our house in both our names though, just to make things “easier” and equal for both of us. 🙂

Depends on the laws where you live. In Ontario, we have what’s called matrimonial home, each spouse has an equal right to the property no matter whose name is actually on the title/deed.

It depends on the laws in the UK (which I don’t know).

If you are already married, why wouldn’t you just put both of your names on the house??

@isabeexx:  I may not be 100% correct but I believe you also have the same law (as we tend to follow UK law in Canada) in where even if your name is not on the deed you are still the owner. Although, I’m not really sure why you would not be put on the deed.
