5. I can think of one example of this
Illinois does not recognize common-law marriage. If for example Kentucky recognizes common-law marriage (I have no idea if they do) but only after 5 years of cohabitation, and the couple lives in KY for 4.5 years then move to IL, then the folks are not married, just shacked up.

(I am trying desperately, to little avail, not to make the the joke about growing up with your sister in Kentucky and common law marriage. But I am weak.)
