Thank you for your question.

Do you have children? Has she contributed to the relationship, financially or otherwise in so that it could be argued that she has suffered any kind of disadvantage in the interests of the relationship?

Did she give up a house or a job or anything similar?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
There are no children. She has not contributed financially from the 18 years together she worked part time for 12 and that money she used herself.

She was in a council flat when we met. I bought a house using £27000 deposit of my money and then added her name onto the deeds. I am prepared to give her half the value of the property.
Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
Thanks. From what you say she is not entitled to anything else.
