English term or phrase: registered partner
not quite a spouse, and must be different from a common-law spouse (konkubent/-ina).

Any clues?

Explanation:
depends if you need it for official papers or a personal description. If the latter, I wouldn't use the phrase I am suggesting.

agree with Lota


Explanation:
AFAIK 'common-law spouse' is 'małżonek'

spouse = a partner in marriage; (one's) husband or wife
vt.
spoused, spousing [Archaic] to marry; wed

[after Webster's New World Heritage Dictionary]

And IMHO 'registered partner' could refer to gay or lesbian "spouses" who are legally married in some countries
