A cohabitation agreement and pre-nuptial agreement are basically the same thing. Most lawyers draft cohabitation agreements to continue to apply if you get married. A pre-nuptial agreement can be more precise and take effect on the date of intended marriage.  The terms in both agreements are generally the same and the same factors to ensure that the agreement is upheld on separation apply.
