The book contains an extensive analysis of the legal status of cohabitants in several countries, an overview of the historic development and demographical data. Through analysis of existing legislation a coherent legal framework for cohabitants is developed.
The book contains an extensive analysis of the legal status of cohabitants in nine European countries, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, as well as articles on specific issues, an overview of the historic development and demographical data. The contents of the respective legislation and their practical experiences are analysed and guidance is given to legislators aiming to design an adequate legal framework for cohabitants. The need for such a coherent framework is apparent; as despite the growing number of cohabitants and the resulting legal problems, in many countries piecemeal regulations have emerged that do not adequately reflect social reality.
