Who is a Member of the Family Class

This class extends to relatives as well and are those who can essentially be sponsored under this application type, assuming that the category is still open.

A Common Law Partner is someone you share interdependence with and have been cohabitating with for at least one year. A conjugal partner is someone you have a relationship with for at least 12 months, which is more than simply a physical relationship, and for reasons beyond your control, you have been unable to cohabitate with them or become legally married.
