I don't think there are any specific rules - but I'd say that sleeping together for only two weeks would be very unlikely to affect the financial position of the parties.

6 months was always the benchmark added to orders. However, even if a person stayed over regularly for that period, they might still own and occupy their own property.

If they rented the property out and moved in permanently that might be considered cohabitation but it is not as clear cut as you might expect.
