Abstract

Despite the increase in cohabitation around the world, legal responses remain limited, particularly in the last several years. Yet, there are universal issues at the end of a cohabitation, particularly related to the property division between the cohabitants. This article will survey the recent legal developments on the property consequences of cohabitation in both the United States and Poland, drawing on comparative lessons to suggest future developments in this area of law.

Keywords: Family Law, Domestic Relations, Comparative Law, Comparative Family Law, Cohabitation
