Customer Question

i was married for six months when my wife walked out. She then asked me if she could get the marriage anulled on the grounds of non-consummation as she wanted to get her widows pension re-instated, I agreed to this. It is now almost two years(May) since the divorce and i have now been contacted by her solicitors,apparently she wants money from me. Could you tell me if I am under any obligation to give her anything?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


for the six months we were married we lived together in my house, she has her own house which her children were living in. she made no contribution to living expenses and used her earnings to maintain her own mortgage. I gave her my late wifes car to use for work and let her keep that. before we were married I paid off her visa card for£6000 and I also gave her a cheque for £1500 to pay off aprevious boyfriend who was pressing her for the money she owed him.
