Well I thought that if you were with that person for so many years and assumed their last name that is a common law marriage

But I mean, if you are going to live with someone for years and "assume' their last name... why not just become legally married?

I did look it up and it has not been legal in KY for over 150 years. I thought that we still had common law marriage but we don't.

That is called shacking up. Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free? Why live with someone and take care of them and then not be good enough to marry them? Can't see that.
