He is not entitled to cohabit. As he has full custody then he is entitled to the quarter as a single parent. His soon to be wife will not be entitled to live their until they are married. However if he requires a live-in nanny or au pair then he can apply for a quarter that takes that into account. Oddly though the nanny or au-pair cannot be the childs mother as that would then equate to cohabiting!

JSP 464 Chapter 3 said:
PStatCat 2 single and lone parents will pay the SFA charge at the entitled rate, CILOCT and all utilities (less water and sewerage) for the ac-commodation in accordance with Chapter 4. DE-HD is to ensure that a written undertaking is provided on the applicant's licence ac-knowledging that co-habitation will not oc-cur.
Unfortunately those are the rules. I don't know how stringently they will be enforced. However I know that I got the big go away tablet when looking into something similar!
