How is cohabitation determined?

Thank you for your question.
You cannot get a definitive answer because there is not one.
In general terms if the couple are spending more than three nights a week together every week then that is likely to be seen as cohabitation.
If the other person has no fixed address elsewhere then even if s/he is not there more than three nights a week then it could still be seen as co-habitation
Each case is decided on the actual facts involved
