Q: would the fact that she officially became divorce from her husband AFTER she and M became estranged make her second relationship a noncommon law relationship?
Response 1: Yes.
He does not want to leave the house, can't afford to leave. Wants her to buy him out regarding the house. Will Texas recognize a common law marriage if your partner is still married in Central America?
Response 2: No. In order to have a common law marriage, both of the parties must be free to marry. Since W was still married at the time of the partnership with M, there will not be a common law marriage between W and M. See Texas Family Code Title 1 Chapter 2 Section 2.401 subsection (d)
