Can my husband put me out of our house and keep everything?

Can my husband put me out of our home? We have been together for 15 years And married for 3 years. I recently lost my job due to personal family reasons and lately I have been have trust issues with him finding text to other females and he has been coming home real late and have no idea where he is at. Last 2 weeks we have been arguing and he is trying to pt me out the house and keep all of my stuff and the the things that we bought throughout our marriage. I have nowhere to go. By law can he do that? Or can he evict me as his wife if I have not been working for 5 months?

I am so sorry for your situation.  There are many facts that have been left out here and that need to be clarified before any guidance can be given.  First, is this a house that you bought together and has it always been your home and marital home since you got married 3 years ago?  Then you can not be evicted from your own home. The fact that you lost your job does not give you any less rights here or him any more rights.  In a marriage there is an obligation to support each other.   And anything purchased during the marriage is community property not his or yours.  It has to be split 50/50.  Please seek some legal help here.  Good luck.
