the woman at the visa/passport office keeps suggesting I get married at the embassy and then I can have a 5 year visa and permission to work. I keep telling her I don't want to bloody work thank you. Not sure if that is true or not as I have no intention of working. anyone know?

5 year visas by marriage do not give you the right to work. That is a totally separate process done via the employer and the ministry of manpower.

However, a legal marriage does give you the right to apply for citizenship and then of course you can work.
