Hello I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to answer this.
The right to sue for breach of promise to marry was repealed by the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1970. You do not have any breach of promise issues. If there are any financial/property disputes between you and her they will be dealt with as if you were a married couple. (eg over jointly owned property etc)
