Abstract

In this Report, the Law Commission of Canada reviews the degree to which laws and policies regulate adult personal relationships by reference to the category of conjugality. The Report argues that governments need to undertake a fundamental reconsideration of the relevance of conjugality to the achievement of policy objectives. The Report outlines a more principled approach to the legal recognition and support of the full range of close personal relationships among adults.

Keywords: Family law, conjugality, personal relationships
