My daughter and her boyfriend have split and have two children together. They were never married. Neither of them can get a job that pays anything where they currently live. Can she move out of state with the boys to find a better job? Her boyfriend does everything he can to keep her in town. He says she cannot leave because he says the years they were together constitute common-law marriage. I don't even know if Wyoming recognizes common-law marriage. They currently work out their work schedules so they don't have to pay for day care, but she is REALLY limiting her earnings.
