If you represent to your fiance's health insurer that you are common law married you will likely trigger an end to your current maintenance/alimony. If you remarry then your maintenance generally terminates. If your ex spouse becomes aware that you have remarried he may have a claim for repayment of all amounts since your common law marriage. You cannot have things both ways.
