How do I know if I’m common law married or not?


Texas has a 3 question test for common law marriage. If you can answer “yes” to the 3 questions, you are common law married. If you answer “no” to any of them, you probably aren't.

  1. Both parties must have intended to be married.
  2. You must have lived together as husband and wife.
  3. You must have held yourself out to others as married.
