Cohabitation (un-married couples)
Not all couple choose to marry. lots of people to choose to have long relationships, set up home tiger her, have children and never marry. The law with regard to un-married couples is very different compared to married couples.
Lots of myths give un-married couples a false sense of security. “Possession is 9/10 of the law” and a long cohabitation equates to “common law marriage”. These are nothing more that myths i.e. there is no such thing.
We appreciate that cohabiting relationships can be just as important as marriages; but they are treated differently in law.
Cohabitation agreements are an excellent way of protecting your interests you live together and later separate.
