A relationship is defined as a De facto relationship if the parties have lived together in a meaningful relationship for a period of at least 2 years, or have a child together or other relevant circumstances apply. De facto relationships can be either opposite-sex or same-sex relationships. The same 4 step process for determining the division of property applies to De facto relationships and marriages.
