I have been in a relationship for almost twenty years. For the last two, I have supported my partner 100 percent, due to health issues. She recently received a settlement from a malpractice suit. As soon as she received this, she basically dumped me to the curb, leaving me with nothing. Can I sue for 1/2 of the living expenses for the two years, her car payments which I made for her during most of the two years? I am in the state of Virginia.

Sure, you can sue (as anyone can) but prevail on these facts for your damages claimed? No, probably not, unless
you could prove by a preponderance of the evidence that you were incurring these expenses you've referenced pursuant
to an enforceable contract (whether written or verbal) and that a core term in this agreement was that your
partner understood that she would be responsible for reimbursing you for at least one half of these expenses which you incurred in her behalf during this particular two year period.
