Default You don't need to cohabit to be common law

In Ontario, being common-law spouses doesn't necessarily mean having lived in the same home, the court found

The sums of money involved are astonishing...

Here's a link to the case on CANLII

I think this decision extends the law regarding what cohabitation is much further than expected.

Well the woman did quit her job and the guy did support her, take her on vacations, they were a couple etc.
One would have to be rich to be able to take on that type of relationship.

Unusual cases make for bad case law.

Default New Precedent Set

https://www.google.ca/amp/s/national...3205f50a6/amp/

Why won’t society just wake up to this madness? So here we have a self entitled judge (one of many) who took it upon themselves to decide that a couple no longer need to live together to be considered common-law. Thousands of cases previous to this one had solidified the basis of common-law relationships on approx 3 years (36 months) of living at the same address under the same roof. But the almighty unelected, “unbiased” and under no form of repercussion judge just up and decided on loosely presented unrelated facts to set the new basis for all future cases needing a definition on common law.

This legal system is broken. Lawyers and judges will make a lot of money on this decision. I feel for every hard working father out there unable to support his children due to the slavery and ownership conditions this legal system imposed onto them. Deadbeat mothers, underemployed mothers and now non live in girlfriends will surely enjoy their new found male slaves the government has assigned to them.

What will it take for change? A full overhaul without interference from feminists.
