I have been living with someone for 30 years. I am retired, I use to own my own business, before we met then I sold that business and went into another one. She did help build up the business and she kept my books, did my taxes, etc. I paid her a salary as well. She is on all my accounts and still pays both of our bills. I retired with over a million dollars. I paid off her house, sold an apt. complex I owned, and bought a house that is a rental (although its empty right now). I am the only one on the title for that house, we are both on the title in the house we live in. I paid her a salary and furnished everything she needed over the years. If I move out, will I have to give her 1/2 the money? I dont plan on leaving her with nothing, is she entitled to half or what does the law state?
