Let’s say I get married to another guy in California. Many states wouldn’t recognise that marriage, so; if I then marry a woman in one of those states, have I committed a crime?
I’d imagine I have in California (and other states that would recognise my first marriage) but it not being a federal issue (I think?) as long as I stay out of those states, i’m fine. Is that right? And I don’t think i’ve committed a crime at all in those states which don’t recognise that first marriage.
