Cohabitation and Religious Marriage

This chapter explores the similar legal outcomes faced by cohabitants and those in religious-only marriages. It argues that law reform recommendations which focus solely on religious-only marriages while ignoring the often-identical outcome for cohabitees are erroneous, and that law reform providing legal rights for cohabitees will protect both types of families.
