For over 35 years, Living Together has been helping unmarried couples of all ages deal with the big legal and practical issues involved with living together: buying or renting a house; sharing checking accounts, credit cards, and property (or keeping everything separate) ; having and raising children; writing wills and estate plans; getting authorization to make medical decisions for an ill or injured partner; and breaking up. This book is completely updated for 2017, with the latest laws affecting unmarried couples in a wide variety of areas -- family law, debt and credit, real estate, taxes, medical care, insurance, estate planning, and more.
