If there is no record of marriage does that mean I am not legally married?

Sacramento, CA |

I was married sometime between 94-98. I do not remember the date. the county records cannot find a record of the marriage. I remember the minister saying he was going to file the record. If he did not does that mean I am not married? I need to know because he beat me and forced sex and I left before 6 months. I have been with someone else since 2000 and want to get a domestic partnership with her. if I am married I need to get a divorce before I can do that.

That you haven't FOUND a record of the marriage doesn't mean that it isn't there, or that the marriage didn't happen. Did you get a marriage license? Where? Have you located the minister who performed the wedding? What do HIS records show?
