My boyfriend and I never believed in marriage. We were together for over a decade, and had a child together. The child and I both went under his last name. We filed taxes jointly, and announced publicly that we were married. I quit my job and became a homemaker once he completed college, and started his career. Now we are separating, and I feel I am entitled to maintenance, child support, and a split of our property. Am I entitled to these things even if we were not legally married?
