    And according to the court, the law in question is, as of right now, invalid, so the marriage contracts were valid when the people entered into them. The governor/state must show that the laws were valid when the marriages were entered into and that they shouldn't have been allowed to enter into those marriages.

    I know you don't understand that someone could feel empathy for a minority group that is being discriminated against,
    I usually don't call them out, but it's happening too much in this thread, especially by someone else.

    As of right now, it isn't. The court ruled to make the laws that would make same sex marriages illegal to enter into invalid, so that means it was legal for those couples to enter into marriage when they did.

    The problem is that too many people think that the Constitution is supposed to mention every right specifically that it protects. It isn't. The entire point of the Constitution is to limit the powers of government from taking away rights. And the 14th Amendment ensured that the Constitution, particularly the rights of the citizens are protected from state governments taking rights from the people.

    Except the law states they do not recognize them.

    Exactly. There are so many things that are not covered by the Constitution specifically, yet are covered by the intent of the Constitution as a whole, and particularly the intent of the Bill of Rights and many of the subsequent Amendments.

    A law deemed invalid and unenforceable by a court, and that is the most recent ruling.
