Partner Graeme Fraser will this week be introducing Resolution’s National Cohabitation Debate in his capacity as Chair of Resolution’s Cohabitation Committee, held at The Law Society’s Hall on Thursday, 10 November.

Presented by the Cohabitation and Equalities Committee and the London Region, the debate will focus on Resolution’s proposal that the law in England and Wales should extend legal rights to those who choose not to marry.

Discussions will be held on whether the existing law is unfair to unmarried couples, whether the law should provide a safety net for this who choose not to marry, whether reform would reduce the willingness of couples to commit to long term relationships, and whether is it more beneficial for society to encourage marriage rather than cohabitation.

Following the introduction by Graeme, the debate will be chaired by Sir Mark Potter, past President of the Family Division and Head of Family Justice for England and Wales.

Resolution is an organisation of 6,500 family lawyers and other professionals in England and Wales, who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. Resolution also campaigns for improvements to the family justice system.
