My state has never had or recognised common law marriage.

Magorn: OgreMagi: It seems to me the judge ruled in a manner similar to many states in the U.S.  If you live together as husband and wife, then you are married.  The ceremony is merely a social convention and not a requirement.  See "Common Law Marriage".

Dead bang.  Came her to say exactly that.  This is basic common law marriage jurisprudence... The key isn't sex but sex+ living together + having kids together


Two things:

First, assuming the quotes given are representative of the decision that isn't really the case. "If any couple choose to consummate their sexual cravings, then that act becomes a total commitment with adherence to all consequences that may follow, except on certain exceptional considerations."

Second, this is something that is almost unheard of globally. Common Law marriage only really exists in a few countries. Notably the US, Canada and Australia plus a few former British colonies in the Caribbean and the like. And within that group, only a small number of US states have it equivalent to civil marriage. In Canada BC has come close after a recent change in the law, but in most provinces your rights and obligation are much more limited.

Yeah, it's not that they had sex but that they were acting as spouses.

Big o' you, subby? I'm the one who married her!

This is a conspiracy by the Wedding Industrial Complex to get men to want to attend weddings.

bullwinkl: Yes, and it's big of me too. It's big of all of us! Let's be big for a change! I'm sick of these conventional marriages. One woman and one man was good enough for your grandmother, but who wants to marry your grandmother? Nobody. Not even your grandfather. Think of the honeymoon, strictly private. I wouldn't let another woman in on this. Well maybe one or two, but no men. I may not go myself.


Whew. I was starting to think no one was going to say it. Fark is getting laggy.
Pardon me while I have a strange interlude.

good luck using that common law marriage for tax or insurance purposes.

Technically, that's what Jesus said in the Bible.

"Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. "
