The state of Florida doesn't recognize common law marriage after January 1, 1968. Florida will recognize a common law marriage occurring before 1/1/1968 in Florida or a common law marriage established in a state that does recognize it as such and the couple moves to Florida. If that is the case then you are entitled to the same rights as a couple who are married under statutory law.

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).

A common law marriage cannot be created in Oregon. However, if a couple is from a state that recognizes common law marriage and the couple meets the common law marriage requirements of that state, then Oregon will recognize the marriage of that state as valid.
