One is to buy the property together and then Assign the property to a trust in which you are the trustee. This way you get to receive all the benefits of owning the home, but the owner of record is the trust and not you or your wife. That's what I would do.
Yes, you can buy a home, several in fact, in your name only while you are married.
However, be aware your spouse will own 50% of everything you own and you BOTH will have to sign papers if you wish to sell the home.
There are exceptions regarding business set ups to purchase homes and I would suggest speaking to an attorney before you make any purchases. Good Luck!
