The law governing the financial rights of cohabiting couples differs dramatically from those of married couples in several key areas.

• Property
• Finance
• Inheritance

You have fewer financial rights as a cohabiting coupled than you do as a married couple as there is no legal definition of cohabitation or living together. This obviously makes things more complicated in the event of separation and can increase the stress during an already difficult time.
