WHO IS ENTITLED TO WHAT

I got married in 1980 and divorced in 1989. However, we have been living together since then sharing responsibilities. However life with my husband has deteriorated –  he is a cheater and I have had enough, I need to get out of this life. I pay the bond, various insurances medical aid, department stores etc , he pays the car and buys the food and pays the utilities. He has now stopped paying the car and I have had to take out a loan to cover the arrears –  he does also not pay the utilities any longer. What rights does he have –  I don’ t want to go to a lawyer because I am already divorced but the situation cannot continue. What are my rights –  do I owe him half of anything. The house, car and all accounts is on my name and I will not be able to cope on my salary but I am prepared to sell up to get out.-
