The Home Office regulations specify that for a relationship to be genuine and subsisting the unmarried partners need to have lived together for a minimum of 2 years before the date of application. [relook at this point – is this lived together or be in a relationship similar to marriage]
This list mentioned above is not exhaustive but if one can pull off these documents, the application is set to be in the right direction for the aspiring unmarried partners to be together in the UK.
