Can I leave my house to my daughter alone if she is married?

I don’t want him to have any control.

ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:

You can deed it to her individually, but if he is a controlling person he could easily use pressure for her to put his name on the deed.   He could also divorce her and take half.  Leaving it in trust for her is the only way to completely safeguard the asset.
