Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Absent a will to the contrary, as surviving spouse you and any children (maybe grandchildren if there are predeceased children) would share all property of the deceased. So you would get a share of his property, yes, and if he has no children/grandchildren, you would get the property as surviving spouse. It would be much better for him to put a will in place to make sure you get what he wants you to have and if you have not done a will with him yet, then he needs to do so.
