The revisionist view of marriage prioritizes romantic love, and sexual companionship as primary features of marriage, with procreation based entirely on the preferences of the spouses (and neither expected nor always even desired).
There are two different views about what marriage is.
“Persecution” is intended to include “fear of persecution or any form of penal control”; it is not restricted to a couple being persecuted for the act of cohabiting itself.
“Persecution” in this context refers to actions taken by a state or government to oppress or punish, usually by law, persons in certain types of relationships, such as homosexual ones.
Instead, there is the passage of one year of co-habitation, the building of intimacy and emotional ties and the accumulation of other types of evidence, such as naming one another as beneficiaries on insurance policies or estates, joint ownership of possessions, joint decision-making with consequences for one partner affecting the other, and financial support of one another (joint expenses or sharing of income, etc.).When taken together, these facts indicate that there is significant commitment and mutual interdependence in a monogamous relationship of some permanence, similar to that of a married couple.R2 defines a conjugal partner as a foreign national residing outside Canada who is in a conjugal relationship with the sponsor and has been in that relationship for a period of at least one year.It applies only to the family class and only to a foreign national abroad who is sponsored by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident living in Canada.It does not apply to applicants in the spouse or common-law partner in Canada class.
