My wife is retired. And I am currently out of work.
I thought I just answered this question. WE both received £475,000 from the sale of our house. From that my wife has purchased a house worth £280,000. Leaving after costs around £180,000. Of which I intend to give my wife a further £20,000. And leave with the remainder. MY wife is retired and receives a state pension only. I am currently out of work. And when working should receive £20,000 a year if fully employed. I am not intending on a divorce as yet. And further do not expect any money from my wife at any time either. Nor will I be asking for any.
I have been online waiting for a conclusion now for nearly 3 hours. And you have gone silent on me. If I don't receive a satisfactory answer within the next 10 minutes I shall be ringing up my bank and cancelling my payment to you.
