  1. I'm not sure we are actually Common Law married. We've never filed joint taxes, I've kept my maiden name, we have no intention to marry and we don't acknowledge each other as spouses. A few years ago I did ask an attorney about it and he said we weren't considered common law as we didn't meet all the requirements. I do appreciate the info though.
  2. I have been with my significant other for 26 years. We have never married. We own a home together and have some joint accounts. About 2 years ago he was left a large stock plan from his grandfather. We are looking at separating/divorcing (unsure what it really is since we aren't legally married). The deed to the house is in both our names so we planned to split the profit 50/50 along with splitting all the items inside the house equally and the bank accounts. What we don't know is if I have any rights to half or any of the stocks. We don't want to have to involve attorneys and are working together to make this a smooth process. We both work full time though he makes more than me but I raised our daughter primarily and now our granddaughter so we view each other equally. I have been working from home for 8 years to have more flexibility to help with our aging parents and granddaughter which hasn't allowed me to make as much money as I could in an office job. I only note that as I read something about Colorado that a judge tends to give more to the person who makes more money.
