Default Help -please settle an argument

My boyfriend and I disagree about this...

#1 In a common-law relationship neither party is entitled by law to either parties pension (ie company pension) that the party contributed to during the time they were together (for this example use 11 years, with children) with their own money.

#2 In a common law relationship a person would not be entitled to spousal support if a) they were educated during the course of the relationship (i.e. got a university education while being supported by the other party) and their incomes were (for the sake of argument) party A $40K (after university) and party B $70K.

Assume custody is shared 50/50.

Agree or disagree? if you have facts please feel free to provide links.

Thank you!
