The US election was, as many predicted, a hard-fought election.  Although the coronavirus pandemic was a key issue for both sides, the election was characterised by the overt populist support that Trump enjoyed and played out through his large rallies, and the more mainstream support for Biden.  Although the result of the election has not been formally announced and President Trump has not yet formally conceded, we now expect

Currently, there are around 3.3 million unmarried cohabiting couples in the UK.
