I believe that you brought this asset into the marriage and it was extremely short term in nature. I believe that there is a good chance you may get away without having to pay very much on this. The only amount she would be entitled to would be 1/2 of the increase in the equity over the duration of the marriage. If the equity in the house was $50k after the mortgage and this increased to $55k then she would be entitled to $2,500. The myths are far worse than the reality. Mind you the reality can be quite astounding.
