Apparently the definition of a spouse is in the motor vehicle act regulations, but who reads those? (oh yeah, me)

 

Those with ‘N’ restrictions and common-law relationships may find this useful.

 

“The definition under section 30.01 of the Motor Vehicle Act Regulations defines a spouse as a person who was married to another person at the relevant time or who was living for at least 2 years immediately before the relevant time in a marriage-like relationship, including a marriage-like relationship between persons of the same gender.” (ICBC).
