    Common Law Marriage: Yes and No. A Common Law marriage entered into in Ohio before October 10, l991 constitutes a valid, legal marriage in Ohio. After October 10, l991, new Common Law marriages are prohibited in Ohio.

    The six essential elements of a Common Law marriage in Ohio are:

    a mutual agreement of marriage “in praesenti” (presently);

    made by persons competent to marry;

    followed by cohabitation (including a sexual consummation of the marriage);

    a holding out to the public that the parties are actually husband and wife;

    a reputation in the community that the parties are husband and wife; and

    that the Common Law marriage was entered into before October
