There are no children involved. I have a property in France that I had long before I met my wife and for which she has not contributed in a financial way in any manner. I take a salary of 25 K from my business and my wife earns 15 K.
The property is worth around £250000. The business in the current economic situation not a lot. May get around £100000.00.
We lived together for about 8 years, married in June 2007 and went our own way in August 2013.
My wife always maintained her own house which her son lives in and to which she has now returned.
As I said she put nothing into the marriage in terms of funding, I even paid her debts which were around £16K as I remember when we first married, I was not aware she had the debts until money matters arose. I had everything I have now prior to meeting her, the house the business etc.
It is a sad indictment on our legal system that permits this sort of practice to exist and continue.
She rents the property and has done so for a long while.
It saddens me that she was the one that wanted to marry me and would not let the matter drop until I had agreed, not the other way round and now I must suffer the consequences.
