The majority of states no longer recognize common law marriages, and Florida does not (but will recognize a common law marriage that was established in another state that does still allow it).

Does new york state recognize common law marriages?

No. New york does NOT recognize such a bond.IF YOU LIVE IN A STATE THAT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE COMMON LAW MARRIAGE, there is no way to form a common law marriage, no matter how long you live with your partner.However, there is one possible catch: if you moved from, or spent enough time in, a state that does recognize common law marriage (i.e.: "hold yourself out as married") and then return or move to a state that doesn't recognize it, you will still be considered married in the common-law state. Since all states recognize marriages that are valid or occurred in other states, New York MIGHT accept your status as 'married.'However, this is a murky area of the law and it is not recommended that you experiment with it!See below link for more info:
