    I move to Qu├ębec 11 years ago and got a boyfriend. Here, if you live with your BF for a year you become legal common law spouses, with legal rights and responsibilities. This happens automatically even if you do not want it to. One rule is that if one spouse has employer supplemental health insurance (which covers drugs, dental, and some other things), the law requires that spouse to purchase insurance for their partner. Employers generally cover most or all of the cost, and any portion you pay is tax deductible.
