What is a De-Facto Relationship?

There seems to be some common misunderstandings around what is the legal definition of a de-facto relationship.

QLD Registered Relationships Advice

Whilst the issue of marriage remains a matter for the Federal Parliament, the particular issue of whether or not to amend the legislation to permit same sex marriage remains a hot topic that has not so far seen any legislative change.
