Answer: Common law marriage is a marriage that results from the actions of a couple even though they have not obtained a marriage license or fulfilled the requirements of the state's statutory marriage laws.  This means the couple has lived together for a period of time and have presented themselves as husband and wife. However, not all states recognize common law marriages.
