Common Law Marriage - Oregon
Although Oregon does not recognize common-law marriage per se, a couple with a common-law marriage recognized in another state, will also be recognized in Oregon.
Unmarried Couples - Domestic Partnership
While heterosexual parties cannot register a domestic partnership in Oregon, many partners live in long-term relationships. These heterosexual domestic partnerships can be dissolved, and the property of the union distributed in a similar fashion to a divorce but with many limitations. It is advisable that long term unmarried couples sign a domestic partnership agreement drafted by an attorney to protect themselves in case of a breakup.
