Me and "my man" have been together almost 9 years and in our state we are common law married... he is my DH and we have the paper work for all of that. I don't think their is a problem with this... the wedding that I want is not going to be cheap, and i want what i want. we said that once both of the kids could walk we would do our wedding... i want our oldest son to give me away since my sperm donor is a crack head and i have not spoken to him in about 4 years. and i want my youngest son to be the ring barer... ANYONE else common law married?
