Nevada Revised Statutes - Title 11: Domestic Relations - Chapter 122: Marriage - Validity of Marriage

What constitutes marriage; no common-law marriages after March 29, 1943


1. Marriage, so far as its validity in law is concerned, is a civil contract, to which the consent of the parties capable in law of contracting is essential. Consent alone will not constitute marriage; it must be followed by solemnization as authorized and provided by this chapter. 2. The provisions of subsection 1 requiring solemnization shall not invalidate any marriage contract in effect prior to March 29, 1943, to which the consent only of the parties capable in law of contracting the contract was essential.
