If you get a divorce your partner is entitled to take half your pension. My husband is on a state pension I am on a private pension. If I want a divorce he told me he can claim half my private pension which would mean I would have to sell my house as it costs a lot to run and move into a very small property with my 3 old cats, and he would get half that . I have worked since I was 16 and built up my personal pension so I can live comfortably in my retirement. I have paid all the bills and mortgage and because of his failed businesses I had a huge mortgage to pay off the debt. We sold up and bought outright. Now because my mother and he don't get on I am in the middle stuck in a marriage I regret but cannot get out of if I want to stay here. I think the law should be changed to reflect personal finances and not allow someone to take half of something they have not contributed to.
