There is a discussion under this heading about a second husband not wanting his wife's GC around too often.
In the past there have been posts about the division of property when there is a second marriage.
I'd like to know why people think it is so necessary to remarry or co-habit. Obviously if a couple are young they may want children and living together and marriage makes sense. But for older people I just don't get it.
For younger people marriage is a good legal protection for the wife and children. There are many cases where people have been co-habiting and the woman's name is not on the deeds of the house and she has stayed at home looking after the children of the relationship. Often women in those circumstances loose out financially if the relationship breaks down.
But it's usually different for older people. I get that people want companionship and may be more but 24/7?
I've been with my DH since we were 21 and we've grown up together. We've always argued about the same things - mainly my untidiness and leaving stuff everywhere. In each house we've owned he's fitted out a study/office for me and then I find it necessary to work on the dining table. I'm a terrible back seat driver.
If he wasn't around and I found another partner there's no way I could live in the same house as anyone else. I like my own way too much and there's also the dogs (mine) to consider.
