Marriage without ceremony?
Anyway, we have gotten to the point where we need to be married because we have a child together, and I have one from a previous relationship. She is his in every way but biologically. So, basically we just want to tie up some loose ends for the time being, but without a ceremony. All we want is for our partnership to be recognized in the eyes of the law until we can afford our dream wedding. We live in the state of New York, so common law marriage is not recognized here. So, do we have any options?
