Göran Lind

Oxford University Press

This chapter, addressed primarily to legislative bodies considering repealing or enacting common law marriage or other cohabitation legislation, discusses the reasons that support these legal solutions and considers which may be relevant in the future. It attempts to objectively present and critically examine the arguments both for and against common law marriage and other cohabitation legislation, primarily for the purpose of giving legislators and policymakers a basis for future assessments.
