[Info] On legalising Live-InsViews: 123
Nov 10, 2008 8:17 am re: re: re: re: re: [Info] On legalising Live-Ins
Let me elaborate.

Not all live-in relationships are going to have a smooth ride throughout.

And, not all live-in partners are going to settle things amicably between themselves when they choose to end the arrangement.

In other words, a live-in relationship poses challenges only it comes apart.

In such an eventuality, matters involving money (if any) and custody of children (if any) assume importance.

Suppose, a dispute arises regarding the sharing of money they had pooled together (when they were living in) or taking custody of the child(ren) born to them.

If there is no legally accepted mechanism in place, how to redress the grievances of the parties concerned?

In other words, provisions regarding divorce are there, because the law recognizes the possibility of a marriage going awry.

In the same way, there should be some sort of legal mechanism in the case of live-in arrangements, because such an arrangement may lead to disputes which only a court can settle.
