Common law marriage in Missouri

I was wondering how long a couple has to be together for it to be considered common law marriage in the state of Missouri. Also I was wondering what common marriage exactly meant, is it the same a when people have an official marriage license. Do they have rights to assets, power of attorney, and so forth?
