No ifs, ands or buts about it … a judge has ruled Ron White and Margo Rey are officially married.
The ruling came down Tuesday in L.A. Superior Court where a judge sided with Margo and declared the couple was in a common-law marriage under Texas law. The judge just wasn’t buying Ron’s assertion that the October 2013 wedding in Texas is invalid because Margo refused to sign a prenup.
The judge made it crystal clear … Ron shelled out $100k for the extravagant wedding, wanted money to be donated to a specific charity in lieu of gifts and the couple was pronounced husband and wife by an officiant under the powers granted to him by the state of Texas.
What’s more … Ron moved forward with the wedding despite Margo never signing the prenup. The judge says it’s significant that, despite having 2 separate attorneys, Ron took no steps to halt the 300-person wedding.
In short … the judge said if it looked like a marriage and acted like a marriage, they’re married.
As we reported … a family friend said Ron professed his love for Margo and referred to Margo as “my wife.” Now that this is settled … the case can move forward. As you might know by now … she demanded $81k per month in spousal support claiming Ron left her high and dry.
That’s still up in the air … so stay tuned. Oh, and congrats!!! (???)
