This Bill makes a lot of sense and maybe we should consider doing similar in the UK.
A recent study shows that 75% of couples living together believe they have the same rights as married couples - or did not know their rights and/or entitlements if the relationship breaks down.
This can be a very complicated area of law. If you would like advice about what would happen to you and/or your children if you decide to end your relationship and you aren't married to your partner please do call us on 0845 128 6960 because we can help.
Introducing the Bill yesterday, Dr Dalli said it was a long overdue step towards building a society that respected all individuals and the choices that they make.
