Under UK law your husband would not be able to restrict your right to travel, your rights in this respect are unaltered by your marriage. You would have to check with an Egyptian solicitor as to how their law applies, this is a UK law website and there is no Egyptian Law section.
Once you have been married for a considerable length of time and then divorce there is an assumption that the matrimonial assets of the marriage (all of yours and all of his) are to be divided in equal 50:50 shares. This presumption can be rebutted so that one party receives a greater proportion if, usually, they are to look after the children of the marriage or (to a lesser extent) if they require more income/capital for health reasons or of their earning powers are significantly less than the other spouse.
In order to protect oneself you can each take advice and execute a pre-nuptual agreement which anticipates divorce and states what is to happen to the matrimonial assets in the event that you divorce. Although the Courts have recently attached more weight to these agreements there a not completely water-tight in terms of enforceability and a Court will consider it one of the factors to considering in determining what is a fair financial settlement. There are worth doing though and to ensure a greater level of enforceability you should both take independent legal advice before executing it.
