Very interesting. The Massachusetts law forbids marrying one's spouse's child, but from the other direction, only forbids marrying one's "father" or "mother"--and in CA, a stepparent is not legally either of those.

Also, the page I found is gender-specific and was written before same-sex marriages; it doesn't say a woman is forbidden to marry her husband's daughter. A man could marry his brother, but not his sister. (The actual law may have been amended. Or not, because despite the existence of erotica focused on incestuous and incest-like pairings, there aren't many people who actually want to marry or have sex with close family members.)
