1. I regret to say that your wife is entitled to make a claim to ALL your assets upon divorce, including your farm, so as to make "proper provision" for her needs. There is no rule of law that land is excluded. Nor is there any rule of law that just because your owned an asset, such as a farm, for 10 years before marriage, that it is not available to make any order the court should choose. So the court will take all your assets into account in deciding what is the appropriate order to be made. This includes your farm, even though you have owned it for 10 years before marriage.
