This almanac presents a discussion of the issues confronting couples who live together without the legal protections afforded the marital relationship. The importance of establishing an agreement governing the relationship is discussed, as well as information regarding the items such an agreement should cover. Living Toghether also explores the more recently enacted laws governing domestic partnerships, which some states have begun to recognize, the limitations and restrictions placed on such relationships, and the benefits provided the unmarried couple under the law. An overview of common-law marriage is also presented. The Legal Almanac series serves to educate the general public on a variety of legal issues pertinent to everyday life and to keep readers informed of their rights and remedies under the law. Each volume in the series presents an explanation of a specific legal issue in simple, clearly written text, making the Almanac a concise and perfect desktop reference tool. All volumes provide state-by-state coverage. Selected state statutes are included, as are important case law and legislation, charts and tables for comparison.
