What Is A Common Law Or Informal Marriage?


A man and a woman may enter into an informal marriage if

  1. they agree to be married,
  2. live in Texas as husband and wife, and
  3. represent to others in Texas that they are married.

There is no minimum time period required, but both parties must be 18 years or older.
