Definition "Living as Man and Wife" regarding Co-habitation
My situation at my recent FDR divorce hearing at court resulted in the following position amongst others:
1 Marital Home is transferred to Ex-wife.
2 I have to stay on the mortgage.
3 Trigger event forcing the sale of property was laid down as ex wife living with her partner "as man and wife" for a period in excess of 6months
Question is, what is the precedent for determining the definition of "As man and wife". My Marriage lasted for 13years, and for the last 10years of that marriage i worked away in London from Monday to Friday and lived in the marital home only at weekends.
My Exwife has been with her boyfriend/partner now for over 9months whereby their relationship has consisted of them living together only at weekends, i.e. exactly the same as the prior 10years of marriage with me.
Can I apply to the court and have this trigger event actioned?
Please give me some good news, I beg of you.
