Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...

Further to what may have been proffered to you ...
Just so you (and, others, that find you post and have the same 'Questions') are aware ...
Here are some "Knowledge Articles", in 'FamilySearch':
Do common-law spouses have the same precedence as married spouses?
[ Short answer(s): 'Yes'; and, 'Yes' (re: "Permission Required") ... same, same ... ]
Do I need permission from the closest living relative to do temple ordinances?
When should I obtain permission before performing ordinances for the deceased?
I cannot find any close living relatives to grant permission for ordinances
Although, this certainly does not relate in your situation ...
[ But, just in case, others come across the situation ... ]
Policy on sealing a deceased couple that were never married nor ever lived together
I hope that these may help/assist you; and, also others, who may come across the same or similar situation.
