Yes, the will would still be enforceable, unless your husband takes steps to revise, amend, change, or out-and-out cancel or void it. A will is not altered or voided simply because there has been some life change; this is why people should review and, as necessary, change their wills when something dramatic happens in their lives, like marriage, divorce, birth of children, etc.
