    Cohabiting couples 'not clear on rights' in event of partner dying

    More than a third of unmarried couples living together in Britain do not know what their legal rights would be if their partner were to pass away without drawing up a will. Research carried out by Direct Line Insurance (Other OTC: DIISF - news) suggests 38% of affected couples are not sure of what they would be entitled to in the event of the death of their loved one. One in ten mistakenly believe that they would inherit their partner's share of any property they own together - but this would only be the case if their partner had asked for this to happen in their will.
