I live together with a woman on a kibbutz. We are both pensioners. One of us is a widow and one a divorcee. We did not want to get married for various reasons. Do we qualify as common-law man and wife , or does the fact that we are on a kibbutz, or pensioners, prevent this ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 27 June, 2022
A man and a woman who are pensioners and who reside on a kibbutz can qualify as cohabitees providing that they fulfil the necessary legal requirements – the main ones being living together under one roof and running the household jointly.
