A lesson on the law of unintended consequences

So what can he do to reduce the confiscatory inheritance tax?
If he lives in a state that recognizes same sex marriages, here's what he can do:
1. He tells his daughter and son-in-law to get a divorce, they do - legal.
2. He then marries his former son-in-law - legal.
3. When he dies, his "spouse/former son-in-law" inherits his money tax-free (note that there is no inheritance tax between spouses) - Legal
4. The former son-in-law now re-marries his former wife and the result is that they have inherited a fairly decent sum of money TAX FREE! -legal
Vote no on Proposition 8 and put the shaft to the inheritance tax!
