As the prevailing practices cannot be undone overnight, the law makers have a responsibility of providing rights for the separating cohabitants and at the same time discouraging the cohabitation with respect to the family life. According to a survey the cohabitation increased by 125 percent between 1996 and 2002. The changes and reform in the law are necessary because the present system of the law do not reflect the system of cohabitation and do not provide any right in the distribution of the property.
