I worked with a woman who was common law-ed for 15+ years.  She never changed her name or had anything.  When the state we lived in stop recognizing common law a few years back they eloped to keep all the benefits that were being eliminated.

I’m in Canada and my fiancé amd I are legally considered common law spouses after living together for one year. We made each other our beneficiaries for life insurance and work health benefits. It’s so easy here. Our wedding is 18 months so all we have to do then is name change.

@Pinkmoon:  Exactly… we call each other husband and wife but not “legally” married with a wedding. We are common-law spouses.

I am now waiting for a e-ring and we are getting married in the spring next year. So we will have a piece of paper saying we are wife and husband!
