In your previous question you referred to civil partnerships, therefore I took this to mean that you and your partner were a homosexual couple hoping to execute a civil partnership. I assume from your post in this question that you are a heterosexual couple.
There is, I believe, case concerning heterosexual couple taking the UK government to the European Court of human rights in attempt to legalise heterosexual civil partnerships but they are presently not allowed I understand I'm afraid. If you are in Singapore at the moment you will have to apply for a family permit before you travel here:-
Once you have here you will then have to apply for the residence card/permit I referred to in my original question:-
Assuming you to be a heterosexual couple then you would have to prove you are in a durable relationship. This usually means that you have cohabited for a period of two years before making the application. There is a bit of a gap from when you cohabited from 2009 to date but I should think that provided you are still in constant contact then you should be regarded as a unmarried couple in a durable relationship. Certainly if France permits heterosexual civil partnerships then this would be very firm evidence of you being a in a durable relationship with your partner and should be accepted.
Sorry for my sight oversight.
