No, your Husband is not entitled to any of the annuity under Ohio divorce law. The annuity is considered to be premarital. Therefore, it is not part of the marital estate under the jurisdiction of the divorce court.

Unless it has been comingled, generally this would be your separate property and should be awarded to you in a divorce.
