Bill: "So you're saying I can't marry Jane because I'm married to Jim in MA. Yet I can't give spousal benefits to Jim because I'm not legally married in the eyes of North Dakota?"
Yeah, no problem here.
Although you're too dumb to understand that they're just trying to push a legal battle into court in order to force legalization of SSM in all states.
Regardless of what happens with Jane, you can't give spousal benefits to Jim in ND. So that's irrelevant.
The only issue is, can you marry Jane in ND?
I think we all agree that the answer in this scenario should be no, you can't because you are already legally married in another state.
