A man has been ordered to pay his ex-girlfriend £28,500 in a landmark ruling for unmarried couples because he promised her 'the security a wife would have'.
David Southwell, 55, said he had never envisaged marrying Catherine Blackburn and had never promised her anything when they began their relationship in 2000.
The court heard the businessman had paid for the £240,000 home they shared in Droitwich, Worcestershire, and also covered the £100,000 mortgage, intending it should always stay in his name alone.
