In New Mexico, domestic partnerships are recognized by the state for certain purposes, such as medical decision-making and end-of-life planning. A domestic partnership is a legal relationship between two individuals who are not married, but who are 18 years of age or older, are not related by blood, and are in a committed, interdependent relationship.
Cohabitation agreements are similar to premarital agreements, but are entered into by couples who are not married and do not plan to get married. These agreements can define the rights and obligations of each party with respect to property, debts, and other issues.
