Hi thank you for your message, you would not automatically get a proportion but you will get a proportion of the sale proceeds as part of any financial separation should you divorce your husband. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
