Does common law marriage exist in Colorado?

0

Colorado recognizes “common law marriage,” a marriage that has not been formalized through the process of filing of a marriage license and attending a marriage ceremony solemnized by someone in an official capacity. A common law marriage is established through the mutual consent of the parties to be husband and wife, followed by actions of both parties that show the public that they intend to be married. Living together for some period of time, in and of itself, does not create a common law marriage.
