1. Things are starting to get serious with my girlfriend, well actually they've been serious for a while, and I may be leaving home to go to college. We've discussed the idea of moving in together and we both think that at some point before this year is done it is something we will seriously look into. My question is this, under Canadian law, after you have lived with your partner for a certain period of time it is considered a common law marriage. So, if we reach the point and the worst should happen, what do I need to do to protect my gear? It's honestly not something I'm too worried about but I think it is something every man should be aware of in todays world. And this will most likely sound dumb but: 2. I was just looking around today and noticed the "IBTL" thread, what is IBTL and how do I make sure that I don't do it?
