I am in early stages of separation (in the spare room!)and expect my wife to file for divorce shortly. We began co-habiting 10yrs ago and married in 2001, she has 2 children (15 & 23)from previous relationships and receives regular maintainence for 15yr old.
We have both worked full time during our years together earning similar salaries. I have contributed to a personal pension for 18yrs, she has no pension but has other savings/investments. As there are no dependent children from our marriage does anyone know if my wife has any automatic right to a share of my pension?
We always contibuted equally to the household however I chose to fund a pension as opposed to smoking cigarettes.
