Whether you realize it or not, your name on that deed is a bona-fide bargaining chip. Trouble is, you've got a propensity for minimizing what precious few bargaining chips you actually have.

In this game, whether it's little or whether it's much, you've gotta use what you've got. At the race track, "You run what you brung." For the rest of us, "You play the hand you've been dealt."
Bottom line: Sooner or later, whether it's now, or whether it's 20 years hence, she's gonna want your name off that deed. And whether you realize it or not, you're gonna want your name off that deed too - prior to divorce being finalized is much preferred.
In case no one's told you, your name on that deed has significant potential for financial entanglement and/or liability. The trick however, is getting your name off that deed and getting something of significance in return all at the same time.

If she's relying on this, what are you relying on??
