My spouse and I never got married although everyone thinks we are married. If we separate do I have rights as a common law husband or wife?
No. There is no such thing as a common law husband or wife in Scotland. If you are not married then you will have some rights under the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 but these are not the same as if you were married.
