  • Cohabitation law

    How can it become too expensive, if we are saying that these couples are to be treated as equals to married ones? Are they not worth the protection that married couples have.
    I believe laws have to change and suit the lifestyle of the present age. There are truly more cohabiting couples than there were 10yrs ago and the number will continue to rise. It will be worth investing in this issue now. People will become aware and more cautious as they are with marriage.
    A lot of vulnerable women, chidren and men have suffered post such relationships, as there was no law to protect them. Like all vulnerable groups, they need this protection regardless of the cost.

  • cohabiation law changes

    The government won't change the law for hetrosexual cohabiting couples because they will lose too much in capital gains when cohabiting couples sell their properties. They changed it for homosexual couples / civil partners as the numbers are much smaller. Mr brown wants to hang onto his taxes. In australia cohabiting couples have rights just like married couples..
