Wife abandons home and husband

The wife abandoned the family's home, her husband, withheld sex, threatens divorce, also has taken most of the necessary personal items, such as microwave, furnishings, vehicle. It's been five months so far that she has not returned.

The husband, still resides in the home, and wants to know is he entitled to it. He wants to purchase a condo, for himself before the divorce goes through. How would that affect him having claim to the family home she abandoned? Also, if he buys a condo, will she have rights to that as well, even though she abandoned him.

They are not divorced nor legally separated. Should he wait a specific amount of time before he purchases the condo?

Can she later come back and try to stake claim the family home they acquired together?
