Not a thing here either. I didn't even know they still existed, they haven't be ed n recognized here for a couple of decades.
Though people think they're a thing and that it applies if you live with someone for some number of years, when that wasn't even how it worked before being thrown out. It used to apply if two people planned on getting married but had to wait (like grandpa is in France and won't be back, or we can't afford the wedding we want.

I wouldn’t be able to sleep without the aroma of tobacco around me. My pipes are all rinsed with water and have NO smells, and I don’t see any danger in just smelling unburned tobacco.
But, I can’t even imagine not smoking in the house. It fills it with such a homey wonderful aroma, as long as it’s not a nasty latakia or aromatic.

Common law marriage laws still exist in quite a few states.

I realize our legal system is different up here in Canada, but both of our systems is largely based on English common law. Here in Alberta it's 3 years living together or having a child while living together.

No common law marriages in Louisiana. Our laws are quite a bit different in a lot of areas compared to other states. I’m definitely not a legal expert, but I think ours are based on/influenced by Napoleonic code, Roman Catholicism, and Spanish law. I think a lot of lawyers that practiced in other states and moved to Louisiana have a hard time passing the bar. Or so I’ve heard. 🤷‍♂️

Same here in Canada with Quebec, their legal system is more Napoleonic code. Same origins too, "Cajun" = Acadian.

Just an English corruption of the word. Acadian became "a cajun" much as el lagarto became "alligator".
Lots of "cowboy" words are Anglicized Spanish.

vaquero = buckaroo
la reata = lariat
lazo = lasso
jáquima = hackamore
rodear = rodeo
rancho = ranch
chaparreras = chaps
estampida = stampede
tan galán (so gallant) = ten gallon hat

And from what I've read, the hardest to learn.
An Indian fellow I worked with that was a fairly recent immigrant to Canada, spoke very fluent English that he learned in school in India, but still had difficulty understanding conversational English as used by his younger Canadian coworkers. He would regularly ask me to explain phrases or expressions he overheard that he was perplexed by. My absolute favourite was when he asked me what it meant when people said that a movie was "cheesy." I responded with "Well, when someone says that a movie is cheesy, what they mean is that it's really corny."
