Just some food for thought if anyone is planning on doing this:
Think about what would happen to your partner if you should pass away.
Think about what would happen to you if your partner leaves.
Talk to an attorney!
I lived with my ex for 13 years and we built 2 homes ect. We finally married and then divorced. Because we built the homes BEFORE we were married I really had no rights. Sort of. Lucily my ex and I went our seperate ways and remained friends. He kept one home, I kept the other but both homes were in his name. Fast forward 13 years and he passed away. His children tried to take my home. 6000 dollars later and a lawyer, that wont happen. Get a Lawyer first! Agree to everything from the start! Put it in writing!
We never go into a relationship thinking it will end. We really dont think 20 years ahead as in our partner passing away leaving a mess......Get a Lawyer!
