You may recall that, last week, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) provided fresh ammunition for those calling for a clarification of the legal status of unmarried couples who live together, particularly those with children.
The ONS published data revealing that the number of men and women in the UK choosing to cohabit rather than marry had almost doubled in the last 16 years while the number of married couples was down nearly half a million in the same period.
My colleague, Beverley Darwent, provided comment on the matter for both the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail.
It is a topic which another colleague, Claire Reid, has remarked upon in an article for the Huffington Post.
Whether cohabitating or married, it is important to be able to rely on family lawyers who can provide the right advice for you and those closest to you.
