There is one catch: if you spend time in a state that does recognize common law marriage, “hold yourself out as married,” and then return or move to a state that doesn’t recognize it, you are still married (since states all recognize marriages that occurred in other states).
But lately, we have been going through some difficulties that I'm starting to question our overall relationship. 1 of two things will happen that day, either he shows how much he loves you and begs you to stay or he'll let you walk.
What we want as 19 year olds for our 25 year old self is typically a lot different than what our 25 year old self wants for itself..
Don't get me wrong I was SOOO frustrated and hurt by waiting and waiting (we got engaged at 7 years and married at 8 year) but at the same time I still got married at 26 which is close to average - i think...?? For me I trusted him to know that we would get there, but I am not the person who says **** or get off the pot.
Think about how much changes from that time when you met? He sounds like he's interested in things he wasn't before and is acting differently.
I don't think thats about not wanting to marry you but might be about being a 24/25 year old guy.
