States would usually extend full faith and credit to a marriage contract executed in another state even if that marriage would be illegal in their own.
Jerry Lee Lewis comes to mind. People were outraged but she met age of consent laws in the jurisdiction were the marriage took place even if they didn’t meet the minimum age in other states or countries.
Hadn’t thought about that one, thanks.
But not interracial marriages, at least not always. Otherwise the Lovings wouldn’t have been prosecuted. I’m not aware of anyone arresting Jerry Lee.
