All owners (people on the deed) of property are obligated to pay the propety taxes: where they live is irrelevant. If he does not pay or congtribute--and note: he'd be liable not for the full amount if the two of you are on the deed, but only for half--you could pay (and would have to pay to avoid potentially losing the property) and could seek his share in the divorce proceedings.
