A: Although that is not uncommon, it could mean a divorce is on his mind, or it could mean he is planning to take care of you in some other fashion, but there is no way to know what his intentions are. You did not provide a sufficient factual basis to enable anyone to give you advice. So, if you are worried about him engaging in pre-divorce planning, then you need to at least consult with an experienced matrimonial attorney.
