The general rule is that all property acquired prior to the marriage is separate property (as opposed to marital property). I would warn you that if mortgage payments were made during the marriage, the wife may have some equity in the house since marital wages were used to pay for some of the separate property house, but it would be a small fraction and you would ultimately be the one who gets the house.
