Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Oct 05, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Sioux County, Jeffrey A. Neary, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (10 pages)

            In this dissolution action, the husband appeals the district court determination that the parties’ destination wedding ceremony in Costa Rica did not establish a common law marriage and that parties’ legal ceremony in Las Vegas was the date of marriage.  So the pre-marital agreement signed after the Costa Rica ceremony but before Las Vegas marriage was valid and applicable to the division of the parties’ property in dissolution.  OPINION HOLDS: On de novo review, we agree with the district court and affirm.
