Common Law Marriage not Proved

In divorce proceeding of common law marriage, case dismissed because of lack of subject matter jurisdiction (no marriage existed).  Court finds both parties in divorce to be untrustworthy, but party claiming common law marriage did not prove with clear and convincing evidence that a common law marriage existed, because, inter alia, the date of the marriage is in dispute, tax returns were never filed as joint returns, and property was not held by tenancy by the entirety.  Rotundo v. Jones, 4 Fid. Rep. 3d 139 (C.P. Berks 2014) (Opinion by Lash, J.)
