Question posted in the Divorce Law category relating to Gauteng

Hi, I met someone via Tinder on 1 June 2022.  I moved into an apartment on 1 November 2022 and she moved in with me.  Her mom asked me to help her with a car, and I bought a Toyota Fotuner that her mom is driving.  The relationship is not working and I would like to get out, but I fear that her mom will take the car.  Is there a way for me to safely get out of the relationship, without suffering financial loss (e.g. damage to my furniture at home or loss of the Toyota Fortuner) or physical harm (I am concerned that they may try to hurt me physically if I leave)?
