|Opposite-Sex and Same-Sex Common-law
A Common Law relationship is defined as two people living together in a “conjugal” (marriage-like)
relationship but are not legally married – this applies equally to opposite sex couples as it does to
same sex couples.
Common-law couples do not have the same rights as married couples. A lawyer can advise on the
rights of the parties.
Child support obligations remain intact if a Common-law relationship dissolves.
A Cohabitation Agreement is a good idea and it should be reviewed by a lawyer to learn about your
rights, obligations and entitlement's to prevent mistakes down the road.
