Would You Pay Settlement To Your Unmarried Fiancee After Breakup???

[center]Break-ups Might Just Get Expensive[/center]

Cohabiting couples would be entitled to financial settlements if they split up, under proposals from the Government’s key adviser on law reform.

A report by the Law Commission says that partners who have been together for two years or more, or have had children together, should be able to make claims.

Under the scheme, courts would have the power to order former partners to sell their home, pay lump sums and even share their pensions to balance out the “pluses and minuses of the relationship”. Those making claims would have to prove that they had made “qualifying contributions” to the relationship, which have resulted in “enduring consequences”. They would have to prove that their relationships put them at a long-term economic disadvantage or gave their ex-partners a clear financial advantage.

The authors of the report went out of their way to allay fears that the proposals would undermine marriage. They included data from Australia that showed how rights for cohabitees had little impact on the marriage rate.

Just because you ain't married doesn't mean you should take her love for granted

Why should she leave after so much time, money, love, body and let not forget the sex making love part, lai lai

You gave her the money willing, to get her hair done, you want you woman to look beautiful so stop complaining about how much you paid for her to get the hair done.

it's part of women nature to have a mood swing jare

You men nags at the ladies too, especially when she doesn't pick up her pick on time, went out without informing her lover about her whereabouts

Good for the baby mama(s)

what abt d wooing, d shakara and hot water pouring treatment they give us while we where asking them out

what abt all the dirty works u hv to do to convince her.

And the lovemaking part, wasn't she willing 2?, d babies, did somebody force her to hv one?

if we dont make it to an expected end, then every body should just count their losses and move on, whats with d settlement?

Suppossing i can prove that my being with her added quality to her lifefinancially or maybe i paid her thro skool or gave her funds 4 her biz would she then pay me?

Did we sign a contract at the begining of the relationship that stipulates dat if i dont make it with you, that i have to settle or pay u off.

We men hv our own wear and tear 2. B4 wen i started with u i fit do TDB 3x a week, now a days if i manage 1 rd a week i dey give myself medal 4 work well done. so now na who go pay who.

Look sistas if e no work anything wey u been enjoy na d spoils of war. After dat one just go jeje

I still insist that Ibo men settle their partners after MUTUAL break ups. Mutual break ups i mean cases where either family is not willing to accept the guy or vice versa, genotype issues, tribal issues, etc.

Most cases, it is not the lady that requests to be settled. The ibo man offers the settlement. Settlement comes in different forms depending on the financial strength of the ibo guy involved. It could be a car, money to set up her own business, a rented apartment, all expense paid vacation abroad, etc.

Haba, i need an ibo man on nl or any lady who has experienced such gestures from them to come and bear me witness.

A recent case happened to a male friend's friend last year. The guy had already carried out the traditional wine carrying ceremony months back. Guy based in europe, lady based in naija-worked at a bank in warri. Then issues came up, allegations and counter allegations of infidelity from both sides. Dowry paid to the lady's family was refunded back to the groom. Relationship dissolved. Guy settles lady with a lovely ride. Lady wanted guy's house at Lekki. Guy said lai lai. Car is all you get with the already furnished apartment he got for her at warri.

P.s. Both guy and lady are ibo.

I know so many cases as well. Seriously, ibo men do it.

How about if the man moved in with the woman and she is the richer of the two like in the case of K.Fed and Britney. Do the women pay also? Or is it just one-sided.

Well if it's come to that, she isn't going to move in until I'm are sure we are going to get married within a year after she has moved in. Problem solved.

Pay what? A break up is a break up. Asking for a financial settlement after the breakup is just pathetic. But some men just need to be torture, sometimes it depend on the situation of the breakup. But I prefer to just say buhbye without stress and frustration.

Most responsible IBO men do 'settle' their partners financially or/and materially after mutual break ups.

Whats the point stressing about settlement after the relationship is ova?

Whilst the gyal is in the relationship she had beta accumulating all that she can so that in the event that the man leaves her she won't have anything to worry about.

If she's sensible, if she has any children for him then she has to make sure there are some things in place financially in case of any silliness.

There is no point crying ova split milk!

@ Eldee,

I saw the article some few days ago and i was like. . . . . .WTF?

What else should we expect? In anutha 10 years, men will be forced to carry bosom-feed babies.

Blimey. . . . who are the pillocks making these moronic laws?

Well its basically a common law marriage therefore they deserve[b] SOME[/b] rights that married couple have after breaking up. These laws have been enacted else where before with no problems. I bet you if the woman was the one paying up there'd be no complaints.

PS. Child birth is enough stress, all the stretch mark and gravity.
