English term or phrase: common law marriage
I am working on an assignment for translation class regarding "common-law marriage." I cannot find any court documents in Hmong with this term translated. Does anyone have any idea what to use for this? The best i could come up with was "Lub tsev hais plaub saib tias muaj kev ua txij nkawm."

Explanation:
Unfortunately, you will have to define it b/c there just isn't an equivalent Hmong word. My examples are:

Muaj txij nkawm tiamsis tsis muaj ntaub ntawv sib yuav

or

Sib yuav tiamsis tsis muaj ntaub ntawv pov thawj
