If I bought a car 2 years ago but I only have my G1 and boyfriend has paid the insurance since we got the car, who should get the car in the event that we break up?

We have had a lot of communication problems over the past several years and as sad as it is to say I don’t think we are going to last. I need to know if I should get to keep the car? I know that I could pass my G2 test but my bf rarely lets my drive and always has the car when he works. I think its in my best interest to leave but I at least want to leave with the money I put into purchasing the car or the car. What should i do? what am i entitled too??

If you purchased the car that you have written about, it is yours regardless of the fact that your boyfriend has paid the insurance on it. Hopefully you have registered title of it in your name. Should you and your boyfriend end your relationship, you should receive it in the end.
