Ms. Peter and Mr. Beblow were in an intimate relationship. Lived in Beblow’s house. Peter acted as stepmother, took care of children, domestic chores. (Beblow used to have maid).
Can we impose a constructive trust?
There are no obligations for services between common law spouses.
Peter’s services were not a gift - court says it’s unreasonable to presume that love implies a gift.

Yes - court says Beblow has attained unjust enrichment from Peter’s services.
