Whether you're just starting out or are one of the growing number of older couples who choose to live together, this revised edition has the information you need. It covers all the big issues facing unmarried couples living together, including: Money and Property: Clarify how you'll share money and other assets. Estate Planning: Leave your assets to whomever you wish, including children form a prior marriage. Breaking Up: Divide property and share child custody fairly. Children: Protect your kids by confirming that you are their legal parents. The House: If you buy a house together, spell out ownership shares in writing. Medical Decisions: Make important medical decisions for each other if necessary."--Provided by publisher.
