According to the court documents, Wine said that Azalea and he “agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife and began residing together in the State of Texas on or about September 2008.” And seeing that Texas is one of the few states that recognizes common law marriages, Wine says that the couple met the criteria for their relationship to be recognized as a marriage.

“Growing up I always wanted to be married and have a family, and it’s difficult. I ask my parents every day how they do it. It’s a process,” Young added. “Me and Iggy just bought a house. We’ve been getting really close lately. I’ve never been with somebody like this. So, I’m taking it as a challenge.”
