Feel confused...

Hi -have been living with my partner, in his house for 5 years (am now divorced from my husband and have 3 grown up children). Whenever I have talked about us getting married, he says ' no because my children could lose their inheritance'? e.g this house.
I am not wanting his house, but just feel I would like a bit of security and I don't feel we're a 'proper couple?

    Hi there. Have you and your partner discussed the options? For example, if he had a will leaving his house to his children, your being married wouldn't have any negative impact on that.

    I wonder, though, if there's more to it than that. What might the conversation be if you could take the house out of the equation? Does your partner understand why marriage is important to you?

    If they would lose the inheritance over it, maybe just let it go?? It's just a piece of paper.
