You did not indicate what state you live in, so it is difficult to give you a definitive answer. In New York, for instance, which is an “equitable distribution” state, each spouse is entitled to approximately one half of all marital property, which is defined as property of any kind acquired during the course of the marriage by either spouse other than property acquired by gift or inheritance.
If the house and retirement funds meet the definition of marital property,
she would be entitled to half, even though she never worked.
