If David and Bruce in THE FAMILY BUSINESS OWNER had formed themselves into a Limited Company, much the same scenario would play itself out, except that the company would not fold immediately.

David and Bruce run a small engineering company in partnership. They started the business out of their redundancy packages two years ago to manufacture rotary oil pumps.
The scenario of the cohabiting couple in a new – ‘blended family’- after the death of a cohabiting partner or spouse, is even more convoluted than in COHABITING COUPLES.
With almost half of marriages ending in divorce and the increase in second marriages, the subsequent – ‘blended family’, creates its own unique problems in succession terms.
Albeit there has been a lot of changes in law recently to equalise the rights and options of SAME-SEX couples with those of MARRIED couples; at the present time, a cohabiting couple family does NOT HAVE similar rights and equalities.
