What is Common Law Marriage and Does it Exist in Maryland?

Common Law Marriage is a framework for individuals who are legally married in certain states without actually being formally recognized as married by the state. Typically these laws refer to couples who have cohabitated, or lived together for a certain amount of years. The requirements to achieve this threshold is different from state to state.

The State of Maryland does not recognize Common Law Marriage. If a couple lives together for a number of years or holds themselves as spouses this has no effect on the relationship status. The only way to be recognized as married in Maryland is to go through the formal process.
