Clarify this. Did you two last live in the new house with the large mortgage? But you still own your old home? In which case your old home is yours, not the matrimonial home. The new home with the mortgage is the mat home.

So he gets half of next to nothing, you keep your primary asset.

Even if you both haven't lived in the newer home you have a very strong argument to make that it is the mat home, with his name on the mortgage and such a short marriage.
