      New de facto ruling

      On 11 June 2015, the Federal Court of Australia Full Court (FCAFC)
      found that a couple do not need to have lived together to satisfy the requirement of ‘live together or live separately and apart on a permanent basis’, which is prescribed in the s5CB definition of ‘de facto relationship’.
      This decision quashes the Federal Circuit’s decision of 26 March 2014, which found that a couple cannot meet the definition of de facto partners, as prescribed in s5CB of the Act, if they have never lived together.

      Interesting case.
      Is the ruling swayed by their Buddhist beliefs and their belief that they cannot live together until married?
