On the back of Co habitation awareness week this case makes for an interesting read. It was an appeal against an earlier court order by a boyfriend who tried to argue that because he had lived as "man and wife" with his wealthy partner, Mrs McKinley ( ex wife of F1 legend Guy Edwards) he should have a share of her fortune.

The court was having none of it. Dismissing the case the Court of Appeal said his claim to have lived with Mrs McKinley as man and wife was a lie and that he was a "thoroughly dishonest witness".
