Can I get married in Maryland if I am already married in another state?

5 years ago, I married Mr. Librarypt. Then we moved. For our anniversary we want to go to the courthouse and get married in the state we're currently living in, Maryland. Is this legal in Maryland? I don't want to get fined or go to jail for trying to do a romantic thing. The google isn't helping me. Thanks!

Does The Uk Recognize US state-level Same Sex Marriages

I'm a dude going to marry a dude in New York State. Said dude I am going to marry is a resident alien from the UK. Will the UK recognize the marriage? Does he become an American Citizen by marrying him? Does that counteract his UK citizenship? What are my rights, here?

I assume this means I can't end up in someone else's body either.

What are the legal obligations of marriage in NY, US?

Is there a clear outline anywhere of the legal obligations of marriage? I haven't been able to find anything online. This can be either for New York state or the US in general. I would like to know what I am legally agreeing to before getting wrapped up in the romantic decision. I am not looking for the legal benefits of marriage, or for divorce law: I want to know what legal contract I'd be signing before I start the whole process. I'd prefer resources as opposed to anecdotal advice. Thank you.

Green-card marriage: risk vs. reward.

A friend is considering participating in a paper-marriage-for-money to permit a stranger to remain in the U.S. The amount of money in question is not trivial and said friend is quite excited. I'm inclined to object, but need better grounds. What are the practical, legal, and philosophical issues involved in this? Any real-life stories?

Were all 11 of the "defense of marriage" initiatives amendments to state constitutions, or were some just laws?

PoliticsFilter: Were all 11 of the "defense of marriage" initiatives amendments to state constitutions, or were some just laws? (I know Oregon's was an amendment, but haven't been able to find out about all the others) If they are amendments, are state constitutions superceded by the U.S. Constitution?

Prenuptial agreement pros and cons?

Prenuptial agreements. Got one? Know someone that does - or didn't, and wishes they did? Looking for personal experiences, good and bad (purely out of curiousity, of course). Are they crucial in these modern times...or just unbearably unromantic?
