Customer Question

I married my husband 30th june 2012. Before our marriage I had and still have:-
A flat purchased 9 years ago, a home (southend where I live) purchased 7 years ago, and a holiday home purchased March 2011 which was derelict and my husband ( a builder) renovated and actually now lives there as he had a building partnership opportunity. He has been cheating on me with the next door neighbour whilst I live down South and work to earn for both of us. He came to me destitute, and I have paid for his life and debt since the spring of 2011. The question is, if we divorce (which he categorically doesn't want as loves me blah de blah), will I have to give him anything? I owned all before the date of marriage, and have paid for every single thing from the day we met to yesterday when I found out all from the woman next door's daughter.
