• People living in unmarried cohabitation have no maintenance obligations towards each other and are not each other’s legal heirs.
  • People in unmarried cohabitation may register their cohabitation in the national register. 
  • Whether cohabitation is registered or not may affect the rights of the people concerned. 
  • When cohabitation is registered, the parties in many ways acquire a clearer status before the law than those whose cohabitation is not registered. They do not, however, enjoy the same rights as married couples.
  • The social rights of cohabiting partners are often dependent on whether or not they have children, how long they have been cohabiting and whether or not their cohabitation is registered in the national register.
