Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to helpwith your situation or get you to someone who can.
My question is would I be able to get 100% of the wine bar since it is my livelihood and the only reason I left secure full-time employment. Would he really get half if we divorced?
I find this highly unlikely since this is your sole source of income after leaving your previous employment. Although it would be considered a marital asset that is subject to division in a divorce, OR is an "equitable distribution" state which means that the judge will divide assets according to what he feels is fair. So if husband has another source of income in his business, then it is very likely that as part of the distribution of assets, you would receive the wine bar as part of any division.
