In South Carolina, a common law marriage is formed when two parties have a present intent to enter into a marriage contract
"It is essential to a common law marriage that there shall be a mutual agreement between the parties to assume toward each other the relation of husband and wife." Johnson v. Johnson
, 235 S.C. 542, 550, 112 S.E.2d 647, 651 (1960).
The point is that it's possible to get married in South Carolina without obtaining a marriage license. In North Carolina, a license must be procured from the county clerk, even if the marriage is conducted in a different jurisdiction (such as, SC).
So, here's reality:
1. If you actually obtained a marriage license from either the South Carolina or North Carolina county clerk, and the marriage officiant signed the license and submitted it to the proper county authority, then you are legally married.
2. Otherwise, even though you may have had a ceremony, your drunken state probably would impair your intent to marry, consequently the ceremony was invalid and you're not married.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne, check with the county clerk where you obtained the license, if you obtained one, and if there a copy signed by the marriage officiant, then you're married -- otherwise you're not.
Hope this helps.
