Default Legal links?

Has anyone compiled a list of links or summary of the various laws on bigamy and adultery etc in the various states, either here or elsewhere?

I've gotten interested after reading that in Ohio, marrying someone else, while married, or COHABITING with someone else while married, is a misdemeanor of the 1st degree, with jail not to exceed 6 months and fine not to exceed $1000.

Yikes!
I'm pretty sure they don't enforce it most of the time, but still. It's on the books. It also makes me wonder what they do if all parties involved cohabit in the same home. Hmmm.
