Legal bigamy: The American Way

Yesterday, it dawned to me. You can get legally married to two people in the United States because of DOMA. The scenario is simple:
  1. You marry someone of the same sex in one of the states that does recognize them.
  2. You move to a state that does not recognize same-sex marriages, so you are officially unmarried.
  3. Because you are officially not married, you can marry someone of the opposite sex.
  4. Move back to the state that recognizes the same-sex marriage.
It is just waiting till three people try this and see if they can get away with it. I guarantee you, it will be a major news item.....
