When any couple ends a committed, cohabiting relationship, rights to property and any other assets must be decided. In all opposite-sex relationships, including unmarried couples living together, partners have the right to an equal share in property unless there has been a prenuptial agreement.

Gay marriage has not been established long enough for regular legal gay divorce procedures to be in place, but the precedent of palimony in civil unions will inform decisions on whether you are entitled to palimony.
