Abstract

In Sutton v Mishcon de Reya and Gawor & Co it was held that a contract between cohabitants, as opposed to a contract for cohabitation, would be valid. The case did not involve a typical cohabitation contract, but for that very reason more closely resembled earlier authorities, particularly eighteenth-century cases. This article reviews the past approach to, current use of, and future potential for, cohabitation contracts.

Keywords: family law, child law, cohabitation contracts, sex slaves
