Cohabitation Living Together

Co-habiting means living together as a couple outside of marriage or a civil partnership. It is commonly thought that by living together long enough a couple is recognised in law as being 'married' and will accrue  the same rights as a married couple. Co-habitation does come with limited legal recognition and rights, but in reality cohabitation gives you fewer rights and responsibilities even than a civil partnership.
