You do not share the same rights as married couples no matter how long you've been together. Even though both your estates may be entangled you have no legal or financial obligations to one another should you separate. The law does however recognise what it calls universal partnerships, where, if you can prove you contributed towards helping him grow his assets, you have a claim.
It is difficult to prove a claim in such a partnership without an agreement in writing.
Best is to consult an attorney.
