    It is valid and enforceable, as of right now.

    These clowns cant even keep illegal aliens out of the country.... What are they going to do secure the Utah borders?

    Not to mention Utah (of all places) does way more for the economy than the federal government does...

    Our federal government cant do anything - they just act and idiot politicians obey.

    An angry mob could coup this government in a matter of days - that is how inept they are.
    Maybe you didn't hear about what happened in Little Rock after the Brown decision. The police and other law enforcement can be used to ensure that court orders/rulings are upheld and followed, when state lawmakers/governors feel stubbornly refuse.

    Little Rock School Desegregation (1957)

    Not too hard. The federal government has the right and the support to enforce SCOTUS decisions, and they will.

    It was not valid nor enforceable when the marriages were entered into, nor is it truly valid right now. It is simply that there really isn't any guidance on it at the moment, so they have to wait for the next decision.

    But the law is to not recognize them, so that is why they are not recognizing them.

    That is the law that has been deemed invalid.

    But just it has already been ruled that a state cannot simply invalidate legal same sex marriages. They can choose not to recognize them, but they cannot void them. And that is what the governor is trying to do. Recognition of those marriages would in fact be part of the decision on its way up now, but it also is easily another legal suit altogether, given the different nature of this. It is similar to what went on with the Prop 8 case. They had somewhat of the same issue.
