When will pre-pre-nuptial agreements become legally binding in England and Wales if proposals that cohabitees receive similar levels of 'protection' as married couples are agreed should they split?

Would such proposals increase the number of marriages or boost the property market by discouraging people from living together in the first place?

The example cited by Advicenow is particularly poor:

A woman['s] partner of 10 years died without making a will. As they never married, the house they shared, all his money and his business, passed to his family.

The woman needed her partner to write a will, not new legislation.
