Full Name* First Middle Last Name of Partner* First Middle Last Email Enter Email Confirm Email What a de facto relationship meansA de facto relationship means you are leading a shared-life, ie. you are living as if you are married in all other ways except you don’t have a marriage certificate. Your relationship is permanent, and you are 100% committed to each other to the exclusion of all others. It doesn’t mean you are in a “try before you buy” relationship, and it doesn’t just mean you visit each other and share a bed. It’s more than a fiancée relationship, and it’s not just a romantic relationship. It is committed and permanent, and you need to be able to prove that.Do you lead a shared life together?*YesNoWhat date did you first meet in personDay12345678910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031Month123456789101112Year20302029202820272026202520242023202220212020201920182017201620152014201320122011201020092008200720062005200420032002200120001999199819971996199519941993199219911990198919881987198619851984198319821981198019791978197719761975197419731972197119701969196819671966196519641963196219611960195919581957195619551954195319521951195019491948194719461945194419431942194119401939193819371936193519341933193219311930192919281927192619251924192319221921192019191918191719161915191419131912191119101909190819071906190519041903190219011900When did you first begin living together leading a shared-life*?Day12345678910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031Month123456789101112Year20302029202820272026202520242023202220212020201920182017201620152014201320122011201020092008200720062005200420032002200120001999199819971996199519941993199219911990198919881987198619851984198319821981198019791978197719761975197419731972197119701969196819671966196519641963196219611960195919581957195619551954195319521951195019491948194719461945194419431942194119401939193819371936193519341933193219311930192919281927192619251924192319221921192019191918191719161915191419131912191119101909190819071906190519041903190219011900*Note that this is not just the date that you first met/visited/shared a bed.
