Cohabitation Awareness Week

From Monday 27 November until Friday 01 December is Cohabitation Awareness Week. We will be supporting Resolution’s call to find a better way for unmarried couples living together.

Currently there are 3.3 million cohabiting couples in the UK – one family in five. Many believe that they have acquired the status of a ‘common law marriage’.  However, there is no such thing as a ‘common law marriage’. Living together does not provide legal protection regarding property and finances, should the relationship break down.

During the course of this week, we will be providing you with regular updates and tips via our website and our Twitter page:  https://twitter.com/fgdlawuk
