Can an LGBTQ+ Couple be “Common Law” or Informally Married in Texas?

Short Answer: Yes! In Texas, LGBTQ+ couples may enter into valid informal marriages. In Texas, the term “common law marriage” has been replaced with the term “informal marriage.” An informal marriage has three requirements: (1) the couple must have previously agreed to be married either by oral or written agreement; (2) the couple must be living together; and (3) the couple must be representing to others that they are married.
