Everything you buy after you get married will be considered community property.  Since you own the home before you got married, it is considered separate property.  However, your spouse can claim and if he/she can prove that he/she contributed to it, then it would be up to a judge to determine if he is entitled to a part of it.

Texas is a community property state, and in most community property states property acquired after marriage is community property.   This makes it a bit difficult for a house because if you have a mortgage and spouse helps pay the mortgage the acquisition continues after the date of the marriage. 

You can review this in more detail with your attorney, and if are concerned negotiate a pre-nuptial agreement with your future spouse.
