Rights for Cohabiting Couples in England?

In England, lawyers and policymakers have continually been debating the rights that should be given to cohabiting couples, if any.  The Law Commission has taken the position that romantic former live-in partners should be forced to pay maintenance if children resulted or if the couple have been living together for at least two years.  See here for the Commission Report, as well as here and here for recent commentary against the Report’s recommendations.
