Areas of Law / Debt matter

I had a relationship with a woman for two years and spent nearly £6,000 on her. I lent her money for a small claims case and I paid for her share of a holiday; in both cases she promised to repay me when her second home was sold. When we got back from holiday she sent me a text message saying the relationship was over. Can I sue her for the money?

The trouble is that you probably won’t have any documentation showing that the money you spent on the woman was actually a loan. If you took her to court she would probably claim that you spent the money on her in order to win her affection, and that in view of the way she ended the relationship you were now seeking revenge. I think you would have difficulty convincing the judge otherwise.
