Thanks for your question.


If the marriage was carried out and concluded in the way that other marriages in Costa Rica are carried out/concluded then the marriage will be legally recognised as a marriage in the UK.


That you have subsequently separated does not make a difference. If you were to be regarded as legally married in Costa Rica as a result of the marriage then you will be legally married under UK law.
