If the will says that the house and contents or house and everything in it goes to you, then if the safe is in the house, it is your safe, and if there are items inside the safe inside the house, those are yours as well.

.

When he acquired the assets is not legally relevant according to his will unless he specifically stated something about assets owned prior to marriage.
