Does anyone know anything about this?

I have worked p/t since we got married, 25 years back, and earn about 20% of what my DH earns. Our kids are at uni.

Part of my decision over our future is based on finances- sorry if that sounds harsh but I am trying to balance all my feelings etc.

If we split, I would be able to buy a tiny house, not big enough for me and 2 DCs, although legally they are now adults.

Hie pension is worth a lot and he should qualify for it in roughly 10 years time.

Might it be possible for me to keep the house and forgo my share of the pension, as I will p robably inherit a lump sum at some point in the future.
