Paper versus Rock – Paper Wins

In the October 1, 2012 issue of US magazine, Miley Cyrus, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth of Hunger Games, said “I already feel married,” and “I know we are forever. I don’t need the paper right now.” In Louisiana, feeling married will not work. Louisiana does not recognize “common law” marriages in which couples who live together long enough may be entitled to claim some of the benefits that married people have. If your fiancé decides he does not want to tie the knot, you may miss having the “paper” that you thought you did not need. To feel married in this State, you should experience the real thing.
