Married 6-2-07. no joint bank account. Never paid anything towards house hold expense, EXCEPT, for my Health insurance, which he paid for up until last March. Which he felt that is was unfair to pay my portion. Currently, I pay for my Health insurance. We agreed on $350.00 a month in the beginning. Quickly he found ways not to pay. Like the internet is slow, Power went out, just to name a couple of things. I inherited a large sum of money. Will I have to pay him half? I bought my current house with the inherited money. He has no car. I bought all of the cars. We haven’t slept together in 8 years. separate bedrooms in 3. Am I stuck in a horrible relationship? NO KIDS!!! Everything is in my name. I pay all bills. Yes, he does have a job.
The money that you inherited is your separate property, so you would not have to pay your husband one-half of it.
