I live in the State of Virginia. I have been married for 3

I live in the State of Virginia. I have been married for 3 years, 2nd marriage. I have listed my husband as my beneficiary on my 401 K plan and also my life insurance. I just started a new job when I asked about information on adding both our kids if something should happen to us. He told me that his daughter is his beneficiary for his government Thrift Savings plans. He has been married 3 times, and is worried if I we get a divorce, I will get half of it so he refuses to list me. Is that legal? I never signed a prenup. His TSP has about $245,000. For 3 years, he told me that I was taken care of, just feel betrayed.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have Lupus and gave up my job in DC to move out to a rural area where I am making 1/2 of my salary. If I had known the truth, I would have never sacrificed moving so far away.

My fiancé called off our engagement. He proposed at Christmas

My fiancé called off our engagement. He proposed at Christmas and started living with me for a few months afterwards. During that time I asked for no help financially from him. Do I have to return the ring? I feel like since it was the only gift I received at Christmas, the ring would be considered a gift. And also, the fact I let him stay with me for a couple of months and did not ask for anything in return. We had gone to only one session of couples counseling and I was willing to continue to try to make it work. Since he called it quits and decided to give up, am I required to return the ring? We both reside in Alabama.

I lived with a man for over 8 months. I gave up two jobs and almost let my house go into foreclosure due to the promises of marriage. He told people we were getting married, gave me a ring, etc He then changed his mind and broke it off with me. I lost thousands of dollars in income. We had a verbal agreement and he did tell friends. I can verify that I quit jobs because I was moving. Is there anyway I can get the money I lost back?
