Thank you for your response.....that makes sense. I am not sure that half of those resources would be mine because I don't think my name is on some of them. However, when it comes to legal stuff, I have no idea what I am talking about.....and he is a very smart business man.

That's why you consult an attorney. Most states in the US have fairly comprehensive community-property laws: meaning that whatever is owned by one spouse is owned by both spouses in the eyes of the law, regardless of whose name the account or item is in.

Look, I'm not saying that you should just go straight for divorce. But you should use the leverage you have to improve your marriage. From what you've said, your husband doesn't seem like the kind of person who would just agree to go to counseling, make changes, share power, etc. And you have to start by knowing what your options are.
