    Exactly what does common law marriage entail in the state of Georgia? How does common law marriage differ from traditional marriage? How do the rights of the respective spouses differ?

    The state of Georgia only recognizes common-law marriages created before 1/1/97.

    In states which do recognize the common-law marriage, there is no difference between that and a "regular" marriage.

    including the requirement of obtaining a divorce through the courts to end the marriage.

    Absolutely!

    One cannot be in a common-law marriage and then think you can just walk away like an unmarried couple breaking up.
