What is the legal test for retaining the benefit of a plaintiff’s contributions as a result of her marriage contributions?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from L.M.R.R. v. B.P.C., 2006 BCSC 1202 (CanLII):

As the court stated in Hubar v. Jobling, the fact that the defendant and the plaintiff were not married and that the defendant did not intend ever to marry the plaintiff is of little assistance in determining whether there is a juristic reason justifying the defendant retaining the benefit of the plaintiff’s contributions. (d) What is the appropriate remedy?
