Yes, they can.
And most states have automatic common law marriages, too.

No they don’t.  Common law marriage is only legal in 10 states.  It has been outlawed in 27, and was never legal in the remaining 13.

The 10 states where common law marriage remains legal are Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, New Hampshire, Montana, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.
You are right.  Thank you for correcting me.
All U.S. jurisdictions provide, under their laws of comity, that a marriage validly contracted in another jurisdiction is valid in their jurisdiction.
Ergo, a common law marriage in one state is recognized valid in another state.

With that said, there can obviously be degrees of venial sin in various forms of excessive indulgence in pleasure.
I disagree. 
What and who defines excessive?
This is what an old priest told my sister on the subject: "Do what you want in the bedroom, swing from a trapeze if you please, but it must end in intercourse."  Otherwise it is a mortal sin.

I have noticed this trend too, more and more women are just leaving their husbands. There is a gentleman I know on facebook who's wife left him, and they have 5 children. He is a good Catholic from what I can tell on facebook and takes his faith very seriously. It is just a really sad state of affairs all around.
 You don't know the circumstances of their marriage, so you should not presume the fault to be hers.  She may have a husband like Croix...

I find that many Trad clerics today do an excellent job teaching the theory, spirituality and theology of the Faith, but the practical side of things is often ignored.  
Our sspx priest does not help women.  He tells them to see their doctor to get drugs.
Good examples of problems by Nadir.  
From what I understand & have been told by good Traditional Catholic sources, you just shouldn't sign anything called a "Living Will."  When you're on the operating table or gurney, the doctor is not going to pull out your Living Will & read it; if you say "yes I have a living will", it comes with a sort of assumption about your wishes.  What I've been told is you just have a "medical power of attorney", or "medical decision maker".  That way, if you are unable to make your own decisions, they must consult your medical PofA (a living person), rather than read some document (or not) subject to their misinterpretation.  

So forget about getting the best wording for a "Living Will".  You don't want to have a LW at all.  You just need a medical decision maker (probably with a backup in case said person is not available).  The one I've heard recommended by Traditional Catholic priests is the PMDD, on the website I mentioned before.  
Ok. I think I got it now. Makes sense. Thanks!

The nature of relationships has changed and serial attachments are now becoming the norm for women. There is their need for emotional security which if not met leads to secret planning and plotting to find a replacement. Material security may now be less important in the case of career women but she will help herself to what assets there are when leaving. Compare this to old style marriages where you honoured for life the vows that were made.
Crisis in the Church / Re: ex cathedra, Francis

While the line isn't clear (I agree), it's clear enough to preclude JPII and John XXIII from canonization.  They were exemplars of revolution, and if it is their example (in virtually anything) that we are to be following, then we're all on the way to Hell, because we are committed opponents of virtually everything they stood for.  If you devote your every religious practice to avoiding that which is praised by the Church, you're not a son of the Church by any stretch of the imagination.  What I'm saying is that if those canonizations are legitimate, traditionalism is not.  
Quite true, especially JP II, who as pope, confirmed the heterodox interpretation of the conciliar documents as to their true meaning.  Regardless there is something not right about this whole business. If one does not sense this then the their sensus Catholicus needs a tune up. Knowing what I know about these "saints", I cannot lean towards giving them the benefit of the doubt, absent a recantation of error by them.

I'm not sure why the video got three downthumbs.  Is it because it's a protestant pastor?
Good luck finding that wisdom from anybody else nowadays.  This is a problem very unique to today, and this man had quite a bit of practical advice which he was giving as someone who has professionally counseled married couples, and it all seemed very sound to me-- nothing he had to say was "based in religion" but much more in basic human psychology and the times we find ourselves in.
He seemed to recommend a prenup at the beginning (like a lot of fiery black speakers, he doesn't always conclude his points).  One might find that objectionable.  I'm not entirely sure.  What I would think is that if you're marrying someone and you feel that there's any reason at all to get a prenup, then you probably shouldn't marry them.  If you do get a prenup I don't think it disturbs the validity or lawfulness of the marriage, unless it spells out a clear and decisive lack of intent to marry.
Anyways.  Thought it was a good video.  Prayers for all the single men out there.

When you take a person's child from them you become responsible for that child. Housing children in cages is child abuse. If you were to house your children in cages like that you would go to jail once you were found out. Leaving a child wearing diapers in hte primary care of a teenager does not constitute taking care of that child. Those children need to be in foster care.
No, those children, along with their parents should be sent back from whence they came.  If their home country is in ruins then their men should be fighting to rebuild it to make it suitable, not running away.  What they lack, besides a functioning government, is male leadership and organization; all the free stuff in the world cannot make up for those shortcomings.
