I am 62 and my partner is 70. We have been together for 16 years, living together for 12 of those.
We have always had separate bank accounts. ‘In 2008, we lost virtually everything in the Great Recession, and have rebuilt our assets into a reasonable position.’ We worked our butts off.
Now that we are ready to retire, I have asked my partner that we put all of our bank accounts and superannuation accounts in joint names. He refuses.
He has more money than me. I am offended. Do I have the right to be?
