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.
What has that got to do with my original question?
