Is it possible to be a woman in a relationship and not contribute to a household in a divorce?

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

It almost appears that the law is written in a sense that allows all woman to be contributors to households even if they pay no bills IE mortgage, utilities, child raising.

How is it possible for a woman going through a divorce to be deemed worthless, providing nothing to the household, is this an impossible feat as it appears on it’s face?

I’ve read cases where woman who’ve helped manage a garden, pick the wall paper, regardless of who pays for the materials, bills, mortgage, these are identifiers used to actually assist women in proving their worth in divided a house/assets?

So again I ask, is it possible for a woman to live in a house, in a relationship, and contribute nothing to the house? It almost appears as if the law is written to ensure every woman is a contributor regardless of financial factors, do you agree? So I as a male will pay the mortgage,utilities, food ETC and the woman will pick the wall paper and help with the decor (elements that come natural with being a women) and this is equated into being a contributor of the household the courts hold, even if no children?
It’s kind of like writing a law applying to a man stating you’re a contributor if you drink, burp, and fart elements synonomous with being a man?

They list elements synonomous with being a women and use them as contributory factors to screw a man in asset division?
It’s almost as if the concept of a man paying for everything is an unrecognizable concept in our courts now a days.

    Decorating our rented property?

    Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

    I live with my partner and our dog in a 3 bedroom house with a 100ft garden and off-street parking (it is just outside of southeast london). It costs us £850 per calender month and is the first time ever i have felt the benefits of renting.

    I asked my landlord if we could change the carpet in the dining room to laminate flooring and he said he didn’t mind at all (he even offered to get someone to help lay it), he wanted us to treat the house like a home and we could do what we wanted as long at was left presentable when we moved out. He has had two previous tenants in this house one for 4 years and the other for 6 years and I can understand why as it is a lovely family home.

    I want to decorate some of the rooms and put laminate flooring throughout (since we have a dog it is a pain cleaning and hoovering the carpets all the time as he manages to bring half the garden in with him every day lo!)

    My decorating taste is rather neutral and modern. The room are all magnolia at the moment and i have used bold statement curtains to liven them up a little and used accessories and its looking good but still not exactly what I want.

    How much decorating should you do in a rented property, especially if you plan to rent it for a while …. no way we can buy, they bank wont give us a mortgage and not going to have 20% deposit saved up for a few years yet.
