Time to face the facts: the occupation of judge attracts as many judgmental people as you'd think it would. Most of them should probably be removed from the bench just as soon as the sticks up their asses can be unscrewed from it.

dywed88: jst3p: Not true.

Common law marriage exists in Colorado still. If you live as if you were married, present yourself to the world as married (wearing rings is a biggie) and call yourselves married you are married. Filing taxes as married filing joint is a pretty solid way to be common law married (not applicable to the gays as we have an amendment defining marriage as being between one man and one woman).

/that amendment can't last much longer

And how does a religious ceremony affect that?

A religious official can sign off on a marriage license (at least in some jurisdictions), but without filing that form, the religious ceremony is meaningless in a legal sense.


Again not true. Common law marriage does not require ANY forms be filed to be recognized.

i don't believe there are that many cases where nobody is at fault.

90% of the time, somebody is guilty 100% of the time.

Once again, this has no relevance to the religious ceremony. They only way it is relevant is if you file the certificate. No ceremony is relevant to any common law marriage.

You can have a religious ceremony without filing a certificate and it still be a legal marriage. I am not sure what point you are trying to make anymore. You originally said:

In all jurisdictions I am aware off, a religious ceremony is meaningless unless you file a signed marriage certificate with the sate.

Which is simply not true.

If you are in a common law marriage, whether you had a religious ceremony or not is irrelevant. You can have one and be in a common law marriage, but from the state's perspective the ceremony is irrelevant as a couple in the exact same situation that did not have a religious ceremony will almost certainly qualify as common-law as well.

The only case where the religious ceremony is relevant for the state is if the priest (or whatever) is the one who signs off on the marriage certificate that is later filed with the state.

politicians need to be slut-shamed as well.
