  • Legally Ambigous Bigamy

    April 22nd, 2013
    ideas, marriage  [html]
    All states say you're only allowed to be married to one person. Some allow gay marriage, others won't recognize your same-sex marriage even if you got it legally in another state. What if you marry someone of the same sex in a state where that's legal, move to a state that defines marriage as one man and one woman, and then get an opposite sex marriage? What if your first spouse finds out and tries to bring charges of bigamy?

    I can see the headline:

    Mary Marries Mari in MA, Moves to MO, Marries Merry

    (One question is where the question of bigamy would be handled. The alleged illegal act, marrying a second time, happened in MO, where it probably wasn't illegal.)

    Songs about terrible relationships

    [Spoilers for several old musicals.] TV Tropes lists dozens of examples of the “I want” song (where the hero of a musical sings about their dream of escaping their small surroundings). After watching a bunch of musicals on maternity leave, I’m wondering h…
