Does a husband have rights in the property his wife bought before they got married?

Does a husband have rights in the property his wife bought before they got married?

by Texas Association of REALTORS®
My potential clients are a married couple. The wife owned the home before the husband moved in, and he was never formally named as an owner. What rights in the property does he have?

Texas is a community-property state. Many times, one spouse will own the home before marriage as his or her separate property. After marriage, if the parties live in the home together, then notwithstanding the separate property character of the home, the non-owner spouse acquires certain homestead rights.
