Been married for 6 years, seperated for 1 year. Wife sent Petition under unreasonable behaviour. I want the divorce aswell.

We been both living at my mums house for 6 years, i have been paying for bills etc. Few years ago my wife had given about £10k towards house renovation. Given that she has not made any contribution to bills etc, i am claiming the £10k she gave can be considered as occupational rent. She is now claiming the money from me.

Do you think i will have to pay this back?

Not easy to say on such sparse information, the occupational rent argument is very weak though, it''s a bit of a none starter.
