Abstract:     
This article discusses the legal regime that applies to Mexican "Concubines" (i.e., a legal notion equivalent to a "Common-law wife" in the United States) in the civil, labor, social security, criminal, health, etc. and especially in the family law area. The article offers two additional features: first, a section on Mexican case law. This section discusses several decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of Mexico and by Circuit Collegiate Courts on different legal questions pertaining to concubines. And second, the article compares the Mexican law notion of "Concubines" with similar or equivalent notions in Canada, England, France, Germany and Spain. Finally, this article includes a practical chart which depicts the legal regime of "Concubines" in Mexico's Federal Civil Code, the Civil Code for the Federal District, and the other 31 State codes.
