People tends to not get married, just live together...pop out some kids.
The strange thing is, Quebec is the first province recognize..common law..as a legal status (back in the 60s, living together before marriage was a taboo), but Quebec is the only province where common laws couples don't have the same legal status as Married couple..when it comes to separation! (i.e. when a woman "divorces", she can get half or get spousal support from ex hubby, but when a woman just broke up with her "common law" bf, she gets nothing!)
