Zero percent.  And you'll like it.

If he is smart, and even if he is not but smart enough to hire proper protection, he will catfish your ass into photos of compromise, timedated to counter any allegations of infidelity and prove you are a gold digger.

Not to hard to hire a person to play a role.
Lot of unemployed actors out there.

"At one point he was offered a job in Europe and I left my new job in the U.S. to join him, a decision that left me unable to earn an income and continue to depend on him for his money."

Huh? How'd she manage that without some form of formal recognition of the relationship? Nowhere let's you just bring in a random bf/gf on your visa.

And why "Europe" and not a specific country?

It's almost as though this might be a fictional cautionary tale.

Nowhere lets you (or me) do that, but just like in 10,000 other ways, the rules are different for the wealthy. The higher up you go on the net worth chart, the more the rules turn in to requests, then vague suggestions, then abstract concepts that no one even dares mention in your presence (see MBS in Saudi Arabia).

He, he, not she (John) may be a golddigger, or may be concerned about financial security if a long term relationship ends, one where he quit a job to join his boyfriend in an overseas employment setting. Might have created a common law marriage, might not. There's a lot of manly outrage here. There's not enough facts in this blurb of an article and the answer is garbage that a 2L who'd taken marital property law the previous 1L year would shiat all over.

if he is just your boyfriend then not a goddamn dime.   if you get hitched and he is stupid enough to not get a prenup then that is another matter.

Wow, you're an expert on immigration law in every country in the world? That's impressive, I thought immigration law was extremely technical and varied a lot from country to country. By the way, you're wrong. In Sweden it is enough to be cohabitating with someone to get a visa. https://www.migrationsverket.se​/Englis​h/Private-individuals/Moving-to-someon​e-in-Sweden/Spouse-registered-partner-​or-cohabiting-partner.html

Not married then nothing, sounds like they still got a decent deal out of it. Debts payed off and free living for a couple years. Best bet is to educate yourself and find your own job or at least something you can do to keep yourself financially viable. Or if your a complete shiat slowly steal money from your partners wallet until you build up a tidy sum that will last for a couple of months.

Same, I went from thinking this would be a hard sell in most courts, to realizing it would be a complete non-starter.  Courts might be moved to sympathy for a woman who believed she was building a long-term relationship.  They will have no sympathy for a man that they will view as a glorified boytoy.

Legalities aside.  Relationships that have some degree of sweat equality seem to work better when break-up time inevitably comes.  I don't get why you'd want the burden of an extra dependent, or want to be the one in a secondary financial role in a relationship, always at risk of being dropped to the curb with nothing.

Then there's this guy... An acquaintance was in a relationship with a guy, she was making a good bit more than him, and he started making sounds about putting a house solely in his own name, "because women are flaky, amirite?"  He brought nothing to the table, and wanted it all.

/I just made up the term sweat equality, deal with it.
//It's like sweat equity, but both parties have to bring something to the relationship.

I interpreted that as thegold digger didn't get the working visa so he continued to live off the the boyfriend. You could do 90 days in the Schengen zone, leave for 90 days and come back for another 90, for example.

Or the gold digger got a non-working family visa (I have one personal example of a gf getting a visa, it depends on the country).

Oh it's not impossible but I think V2micca's point still stands. A pretty young white woman gets waaaay more sympathy in court than a gay male boytoy who's going to look like a gold digger to a jury even if their circumstances were identical.

Listen,
it's either live in his mansion, report zero income, and sign up for every social service there is,
or get married then divorced and take him for all he's worth

You can't have it both ways.

Assuming that person IS ALREADY A CITIZEN OF SWEDEN.

Saying 'my boyfriend was offered a job in Europe' means they don't currently live or are citizens of any country in Europe.  So no.  Try again.

And as for significant others... if you're a citizen of a country, most countries allow you to sponsor someone for a visa.  Sweden is not remotely special in that regard.  It's the number 1 easiest way to immigrate somewhere.

Number 2 is being rich.

Number 3 is being young, having technical skills, and not being broke.
