Common law marriage was abolished in Wisconsin in 1917? Therefore, if you live with someone and are not married to that person, neither of you have any rights to the other person's property upon death or incapacitation. Both of you will need a Will and Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Finance and Property if you want your significant other to have any rights to make decisions on your behalf or to inherit property.
