Sisters, Sisters, There Never Were Such Devoted Sisters

Investigating the legal position of thoes who care for their family members.

HIn England, interpersonal rights and duties of support have traditionally only attached themselves to couples united by law, sex and children. Why should there not be family obligations to support siblings and parents? When a daughter has taken care of her elderly parents throughout her life, does she have rights when they die? When two sisters have lived together for decades, why are they treated less generously than civil partners when one of them dies?
