The Moneyist: My husband inherited money — should I divorce him after he pays off our mortgage?

Dear Moneyist,

My husband of 21 years is expecting an inheritance payout in the next month or two. He wants to use the money to pay off the mortgage on our home. I am familiar with “co-mingling” and am sure he is as well. If the money is not co-mingled, will I be required to pay him half of the amount used to pay off the mortgage if we divorce before the end of the year? If so, is there a set amount of time that has to pass from the time the mortgage is paid until we divorce for me to not be required to repay him?
