Purchasing a house in community property state?

I am trying to close a mortgage loan prior to getting married, however I don’t think its going to close until after.

I live in WA, however I am getting married in a non community property state.

If I sign the paperwork as a single person after we are married. What is the likely hood someone would find out? My future husband knows about this, he doesn’t want to be on title because of some identity theft issues. His sister stole his identity and put him on a mortgage loan which is being foreclosed on, so we don’t want him to be on title untill that is taken care of.

If the state doesn’t know we were married, or even when we were married, who would find out if I just waited to show proof of the marriage? I know that its not Legal to do, I’m just asking how realistic is it?
