you have not made it clear what your parents' situation is. Have they passed away? Are they in bad health? If there is money there for you, could you not arrange a loan of enough to get you to be able to go on your own? Your husband should not ordinarily get any of this inheritance as long as you consistently hold it as your own separate property. On the other hand, if your husband has significant issues, such as medical needs, a court may force you to share. See a good local lawyer. Good Luck.
