Many people still believe in one of the biggest urban myths about marriage- that if you live with your partner for long enough then your relationship status becomes, in effect, a ‘common law marriage’ and have the same legal rights. The 2011 census recorded that more than 10% of adults were cohabiting and many don’t realise the full implications of their situation legally in the event of separation or death. Cohabitation and “common law marriage” has no legal status! Unlike marriage and civil partnerships, unmarried couples have no legal rights over their partner’s property or assets if they die or separate.
