Explore:  Common Law Marriage

Even though common law marriages are not recognized under Arizona state law, Arizona does acknowledge opposite-sex marriages created in other states. As a result, if a couple first enters into a common law marriage in another state and then moves to Arizona, even though common law marriages are not recognized under AZ state law, the couple is still legally married in Arizona.
