From a purely pragmatic point of view…

if you don’t see yourself getting back together, get the divorce NOW. At the moment, you don’t own the property, and that ‘wealth’ can’t be used against you for division of assets. Then if he would owe you alimony you might be able to negate him having any claim on your inherited house. Talk to a lawyer now, but I’d think that if you cut ties BEFORE you get the house, it would be easier to keep it to yourself(and brother).
