Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
In order to be married, you need not only a marriage license, but a ceremony has to be performed in front of someone who is authorized to perform marriages within the state. Just because you obtained a license does not mean you were ever married if no ceremony was ever performed. If that is the case, they cannot charge you with anything.
Even if some mistake was made and you can show you did not believe you were married AND with 43 years passing, no DA in their right mind would ever charge you with any crime.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
