Imagine there is no official evidence of your marriage event, but:
You are known as Mr. and Mrs.
You appear in a census as husband and wife.
You have filed joint tax returns as husband and wife.
Now, try to prove in a court of law that you are not married.
It would be easier and cheaper to get a divorce, than to prove you're not
married. That's where Common Law comes in, in all states. If it looks
like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.
