It would be best to ask the insurance company. I do not believe common law is a legally defined.
Insurance companies find any excuse to not pay out, so let them confirm.

It just means you get the benefits without the commitment.;-)

It is a legal term for living together as Man and Wife without being married.

WHAT!? I can't find any reference to this other than a married couples allowance of 10% for old people. There is no difference in my tax allowance when I use the site below, clicking married or unmarried.
