for legal arrangements for couples who live together, it is unlikely to
be made law in the near future.
A Co-habitation Agreement is
simply a contract setting out how two people intend to conduct their
lives together whether in the long or short term and can cover issues
such as finances, property and parental responsibility. However, it has
no legal standing but shows good evidence of each individual’s
intentions if, unfortunately, the relationship breaks down.
