Relationships and Cohabitation Scotland
Many couples in Scotland choose to cohabit before committing to marriage or civil partnership.
If you choose cohabitation (living together) with your partner, it’s important to be aware that under Scots Law, you and your partner will have certain rights under Scots Law. And these rights differ significantly from those under marriage or civil partnership.
