In the UK, it is now common for couples to cohabit without marrying, however, few understand the legalities involved in such a relationship.

A common misconception is that unmarried couple who live together think they have more rights than they actually do.

The very limited legislation that applies to people in these circumstances means that a number of issues may arise, should their relationship break down at a later stage.
