Then call off your wedding. Sorry to say, the only way to protect your assets is to not get married.
I want to protect my assets.
It is not possible for someone to "make" their spouse wait 5 years for a divorce. If someone wants a divorce they can get one within a much shorter timeframe than this, and there is not a thing in the world their spouse can do to prevent it.
She made him wait 5 years for the divorce
Hmm really? Well she would need his approval to do this, which he should not give. Now if she wants to remortgage with their son after the divorce is settled then that is up to her. But they should settle the finances of their marriage first.
she is going to try to get a mortgage with the eldest child to buy him out
Yes. If you remarry then you cannot apply to court for Ancillary Relief. This will put him in a bit of a bind if she decides not to play ball. It should not affect you, but it will affect him.
I understand once we are married things will change
O rly?? Husbands have rights you know, you can''t just write him out of your will. If sufficient provision is not made for him then he could contest the will and would probably be successful.
When we marry I will update my will so that my children still inherit the house anyway (with him entitled to live in it).
