You consult with a family or matrimonial law attorney; that's what you should do.

The short answer is, the law does not make someone stay married if he or she does not want to; your husband will be able to get out of the marriage. Where you can affect matters, however, may be on how the marriage ends--for example, you may be able to get an annullment, on the grounds he committed fraud in the marriage by marrying you only for your insurance. Also, if you divorce rather than annul, there are issues of support (who supports whom, and for how much), division of anything acquired during the brief marriage, etc. to be considered. Therefore, you should consult with an attorney right away, so that if this marriage ends, it ends on the terms most favorable to you. Good luck.
