Cohabitation Agreements: Better Than Nothing?
Last month, the United Kingdom marked “Cohabitation Awareness” week, a campaign to help bring public and government attention to rights for cohabiting couples. Some 3.3 million cohabiting couples are raising children in the UK, according to the Office for National Statistics. Currently in the UK, cohabiting couples who live together a long time, form bonds, share property, and have children, for instance, have little legal protection against suffering great losses should a split occur.
