Well, the rumors were finally confirmed by Brody as seen in a sneak peek of "The Hills: New Beginnings" season finale.

In a heart-to-heart talk with Pratt as seen in a clip uploaded on Twitter, Brody insisted that the absence of a marriage certificate didn't prove that their relationship had problems. 

He explained that before the destination wedding in Indonesia, they met with attorneys, but they couldn't finalize it because they have been busy since then.

Brody said:

"We just haven't gotten around to going to do it in the whole courthouse or however we're going to decide to get legally married. Like I said, whether you put it on a piece of paper or have just a celebration in Indonesia, we're married, and she's my wife, and I love her to death."

"Let me tell you something about marriage — there's a lot of legality involved. I don't believe in the whole signing part of it, but everything else — I'm with it, Brody said."

It was reported that Carter said that she and Brody were overwhelmed with the planning of the Indonesian wedding and decided to focus solely on it and not the formality of legalizing their union.
