Editorial Reviews


"This is the definitive work on U.S. common law marriage. Scholars of family law across the US will be very glad Professor Lind undertook this project. Professor Lind's book provides very helpful information about how common law marriage developed. His chapters on informal marriage under Roman and Canon law, provide a helpful survey of the legal historical background out of which common law marriage emerged."
J. Thomas Oldham, University of Houston Law Center

"Professor Lind's work is extremely timely and his research is extremely thorough. He offers both a contemporary and an historical perspective and his analysis is careful and thoughtful. It provides the information that policymakers and scholars need, and does so in a thorough and unbiased manner. I expect that this book will have a significant impact on the development of the law governing cohabitation."
Marsha Garrison, Brooklyn Law School
