there is absolutely no religious of governmental paper we have signed before or after marriage
i have not placed her on any of my asset, or health insurance, or retirement account or personal income taxes or house dead
Expert:  N Cal Attorney replied 1 year ago.

If there was no marriage license then the marriage was not legally valid under NY law.

However, if one party in good faith believed the marriage was valid, that person could be treated as a putative spouse by the courts.

I hope this information is helpful.
