Hello, thank you for the question. There's rarely an easy answer, unfortunately.

What province are you in?

Do you have children together?

Are you in a spousal relationship, or roommates, or what?

Who is making that determination of "common law"? Is it for court, or taxes, or benefits, or something else?
