Common Law Marriage in Colorado

Colorado is one of the few remaining states that still recognizes common law marriages. That means that in order to be legally married in Colorado, it is not always necessary to obtain a marriage license or go through a formal ceremony. There are three elements to establishing a common law marriage. The parties must 1) live together, 2) agree that they are married, and 3) hold themselves out to the public as married. Once parties are common law married, they are legally married for all purposes, and subject to the same laws as any other married couple. There is no "common law divorce" and couples who are common law married must go through the same process for the dissolution of their marriage as couples who have obtained a marriage license.
