Legalities of cohabitation
Are there any legalities of cohabitation or common law marriage in Alabama I need to be concerned with before I let my boyfriend move in with me? Currently, I am purchasing my own home and I will continue to make the mortgage payment myself. All the bills will remain in my name also. He will give me a set amount of money each week to contribute to the expenses. I have accumulated a lot of personal property, savings, retirement accounts (cd's and 401k) and want to make sure all of my assets are protected. Are there any precautions I should take?
