I know that sometimes states will consider "palimony" if you were living together and reliant on each other before you were legally married. What they will want to know is that you have established a lifestyle that you are required to maintain, but are unable to do so on your own due to the dynamics to which you had become accustomed. They might order transitional support to help you get set up with a household you can maintain on your own, but I wouldn't count on longer term support.
