I assume not.

SHE MENTIONS THEIR MARRIAGE IS A FALSE MEMORY IMPLANT,SO I ALWAYS ASSUMED IT WAS SHORT TERM,BUT IMPLANTED AS LONG TERM.

If the events of the film after he goes to recall are reality then no they weren’t married for 8 years. If the whole thing was a dream then probably yes

One of the pictures that gets shot in the apartment by Lori, looks like Doug in the implant chair being hugged by Lori. So, it seems that their “marriage” was most certainly fabricated by Rekall imo.

Exactly. Lori is actually married to Cohagen's goon Richter. Quaids entire life as a common working man is a memory implant.

He was probably with Lori for a few weeks tops to ensure the memory implant held.
