    away with it years ago.

    My dad had a prof. who maintained an apartment just to avoid becoming married to his partner ;)

    He had an estranged wife he didn't want to legally divorce, because she was in an asylum and his health care benefits paid her bills.

    If Common Law had kicked in, he would have been guilty of bigamy.
