    As I said above, Georgia doesn't "do" common-law marriages. They will recognize common-law marriages that were formed in other states, but there is no such thing as a common-law marriage formed in Georgia.

    As I also said above, yours is a matter of contract law, plain and simple.

    The problem is that most law in a situation like this isn't statutory it comes from case law.

    NO such limit is expressed or required .

    I don't know what passes for what in GA ..but you can get on very slippery slope as to enforceability
    of a contract over something that is improper by local or state law. .

    But a LT written lease stands as written especially if it looks like, smells like, and parties perform just like it says...and pay as required etc THere are other ways to do it , none perfect , ....but I agree its smarter to discuss things with counsel ahead of time .

    I don't keep a statistical count ..but my guess is a good percent of live together deals break apart.
