Common law marriage

Edgar's picture
A common -law marriage, or “informal” marriage, is one where the parties do not have a wedding or marriage ceremony, but the law recognizes their relationship as a “marriage” because of the parties’ conduct. Conduct that could give rise to a common-law marriage includes the parties’ introducing each other as “husband” and “wife;” filing joint tax returns; and living together for an extended period of time
