@GonzaloMedina If you wrap the two fbox paragraphs into a \begin{varwidth}{\linewidth} block, it does what I want. If you update your answer, I'll select it, since it is a small change from your original.

@GonzaloMedina This is very close, but the left edges of the boxes must align.

@GonzaloMedina There are tabulars such as \begin{tabular}{lllp{4in}}. These don't expand to use extra margin space.

Just edited my question to make it clear that the paragraphs have rigid widths. This causes the paragraphs to not be centered if the lengths passed to adjustwidth are too big.

comment How can I typeset LaTeX math proofs with long lines?
@mafp I was mistaken. The second multiline is not left aligned, but is right aligned to the first multiline. I edited the example in my question to make this apparent. It should now be possible to see the real problem, which was not clear before the edits: the second multiline should be right aligned to the align environment, not the multiline environment. I hope the question is more clear now!

@mafp I just tried with mathtools 1.12 and got the same behavior. In particular, the lines of the equations are flushed left. This looks ugly in a larger proof that uses the full width of the text area.
