If you're not sure whether your potential partner is married, it's always a good idea to run a background check first. After all, there are many legal implications attached to marital status. For example, suppose you share financial assets and aren't in a spouse-equivalent relationship with another person (such as cohabiting or being in a civil partnership). In that case, their financial affairs may need to be considered when administering an estate if they die without a will.

It's not just about estate planning, though. It is also possible that your cohabiting partner may be entitled to a copy of your medical records if you become ill. This could mean that the information will have to be disclosed to a partner who isn't even your spouse or civil partner.

If you have children, then it is generally better to take steps to make sure all the relevant parties are legally recognized as parents as soon as possible. In the case of separation or divorce, this will make the process much smoother for everyone involved. 

If you're already in a civil partnership or marriage, things become more complicated; you need to ensure no other legal obligations have been overlooked. For example, suppose your partner is expecting but hasn't told you and has not officially named the father on their child's birth certificate. In that case, this may cause problems when registering the child at birth and applying for legal documents such as passports and work permits.

This blog will take you through three quick and straightforward ways to know “How to find out if someone is married”

Looking for the Signs When You First Meet

The first step is to look for any warning signs. If the person you're interested in doesn't want to talk about their past (or won't give you any details), then that should be a cause for concern. If you need to take an interest in their personal life, this may also signal a warning sign. Two notable characters that could help you with the muddled up situation are:

He Wears a Ring

If your partner is wearing a ring, then the chances are they are married. Just take a quick look at their hand, and you will be able to tell if they have a wedding ring on or not. If they don't, then the chances are they are not married. Also, signet rings are ubiquitous among married people; the signet emblem on the ring is usually reserved for only the most important people in their life. If you're under the impression that your partner has a signet ring, chances are they're married.

He Won't Add You on Social Media

Another warning sign to note on the first meeting is that if your partner doesn't want to add you to their social media account, this is a bad sign, even if it's just as a friend. It means that they're not ready to have you get a hold of so much personal information about them. Though it may seem innocent enough, there are legal implications when someone has access to your personal information, such as bank statements and pictures of you from family outings. Then you can use social media search engines to know them better.

Using Dating Habits to Detect Marital Status

If the warning signs do not clear any confusion, you should look for clues in their habits that can help you better grasp whether or not they are married. For example, if your partner has a habit of coming home late every night and never stays out with friends, then it could be that they're coming home every night because they're spending time with their spouse. If they've been working hard recently, then it might be because they want to give the illusion that their marriage is just fine and dandy.

He Is Sketchy About You Calling/ Texting Him

To this day, we still don't understand how people can ignore legitimate texts and phone calls but never return them. This is a clear signal that someone is married and probably doesn't want you trying to get in between them and their other half. So, the first prominent habit to notice is if you try to engage in conversation with this person, the chances are that they will turn the conversation around and pretend like they were not ignoring you.

He Won't Introduce You to His Friends or Family

If he refuses to introduce you to his friends or family, then chances are he's married and hiding the fact from you for the reason that is not good. Of course, there are exceptions to this, but it is still a good sign of something being up.

You Never Attend Any Special Events With Him

If there are social events such as weddings, he could have invited you too but never has, then it's a pretty good sign that he's already tied down to someone else. If he never comes to any social events, it might signal that he is married. This could be because he doesn't want to lie about his relationship status and wants to avoid a situation where someone asks him for details, or it could be because he doesn't want his wife to know what's going on.
