I heard the other day about a guy who had been a ‘house-husband’ and main carer for the kids for a working mother – but they never got married. She recently sold her business for millions – and told him to leave (the kids are now grown up). The poor man probably has no pension, and has no rights to any of her pension. He gets no money from the business sale, and if his name isn’t on the mortgage and he doesn’t have a tenants in common agreement, he basically has nothing.
This happens mainly to women, but also men too. Here is a link to a very scary story about what happened to a woman last year with three children, whose partner (legally) changed the locks on their family home. They weren’t married and had no cohabitation agreement: Click here to see video
