    Paperless Marriage

    Advertisements
    My mom was asked by a friend how she could "go against God" and have intercourse with the man I call my stepdad and they're not legally married. My mom looked the lady square in the eye, and said.. "I don't need a piece of paper and a last name change to tell me whom I love."
    My mom has been with my "stepdad" for over 8 years. He's accepted all her kids as his own, but never tried to be our father... just tried to be a fatherly figure and help us. They live together, and have since they got together. Yes, he's barely around because his work makes him travel alot, but that's just like military marriages (he's not military, he's what they call a FLEE--something to do with traveling electricians).

    Do you think people can consider themselves "married" without being legally written? They outlawed common-law marriages. Which in a way sucks.

    *Editted because I found out some info from yall posting TY! Ohio, which is where my rents live, don't allow common law marriages. They actually looked into it.**

    Before I knew your name,
    Before I saw your chin and your nose,
    Before I counted your fingers and toes,
    I asked heaven for someone as wonderful as you,
    And every prayer and wish came true.
    I dreamed of you...

    Sure do you can be married in the eyes of G-d without getting a paper from the government saying they agree.

    My mom has been with her boyfriend for about 15 years now. They are not married and will never be married, but as far as they are concerned they are, and when he dies, my mom will get everything as stipulated in his will.

    they haven't outlawed common law marriages. Texas still has them friends of ours were common law married till just last year when they took the big step..
    I think its up to each individual person to decide what is best for them. For the military i do think actually getting married is better then being common law married.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I agree. They don't recognize you unless you are married.

    actually OH has grandfathered common law marriages. you have to have been together before a certain date for it to count.
    it's not outlawed but rather just not recognized in most states
