Subject: [TMG] Common Law Marriage Sentence Structure

This question is directed to those who produce output from TMG in French.
I would like to know how you handle sentence construction for common-law
marriages in both French and English.
Specifically, in French do you use the words "le conjoint/la conjointe" or
"le compagnon/la compagne" or something else. And in English do you use the
words "partner" or "companion" or "spouse" or something else.
I had been using "companion" in English and "le compagnon/la compagne" in
French but recently have been requested, by my brother-in-law, to use "le
conjoint/la conjointe" in French. (They do not care what I use in English).
I would appreciate some guidance in what is accepted usage.
Thanks in advance,
Willowdale ON Canada
