Partner and I have been together for 10years. We keep all our finances separate. Recently, partner has been the sole breadwinner to allow me to spend more time at home with our children. He pays for mortgage bills etc but everything is in my name and always has been.
He has major debt which is being monitored. He isn't in any hurry to pay it off - he just isn't that way inclined but it's better than what it was 10years ago.
We'd like to get married out of principal really.
If we did get married, and the worse comes to worst - could the debtors in any way register a restriction on my house and view any beneficial interest because my hubby has been paying the mortgage?/
I want to protect my assests as much as possible. He is not on my deeds and we have nothing in joint names.
