The state of Texas recognizes common law marriage, which is also referred to as "informal marriage." Unlike a traditional marriage, a common law marriage comes about naturally without formalities or special ceremonies, but certain legal requirements exist pertaining to the relationship. If these legal requirements can be proved, your common law marriage will not have a lesser status than a legally formalized marriage.
There are certain things that divorcing spouses do, time and time again, that make their divorces much worse than they have to be.

Grandparents do not automatically have the right to spend time with their grandchildren as a general rule of thumb.

One of the easiest ways to bring any relationship to a close is to simply stop talking. Relationships require an exchange of ideas and a sense of connection through words to flourish. It's also important for that communication to be respectful and healthy. If there is plenty of communication but it's filled with contention, aggression and fighting, this can also bring a marriage to a close.
