It is an offence which is committed when a person who has married in accordance with the U.S. law enters into another marriage under the Act while the first marriage remains undissolved. This is illegal in every state in the U.S. and this offence attracts imprisonment up to 5 years.

It should be stressed that the offence may be committed by both sexes.
