    Not the same thing at all. The others you list are conditional licenses. "As long as you adhere to XYZ . . . " Aside for a smart-aleck comment, what would you do if you suddenly received a letter re your own marriage: "Your marriage is hereby declared null and void."

    Seriously: I would celibrate. I'm divorced, remember? The state just saved me all the lawyers fees for getting rid of that crazy bitch.

    And if the state voided our wedding when the marriage was good, then we would see how seriously we took our vows in church. Honestly I think in my case we would have seporated sooner if our legal vow was voided because our marriage was doomed before it began, we were just to dumb to see it.

    Well you don't understand what the license is for then. The marriage license is a license to marry which means it allows you to have a ceremony and by signing it the celebrant of the wedding endorses the marriage as an officer of the state. Once filed the marriage is legal. No the state can say they don't recognize it but that might mean another trip to the courts where they will tell them they must recognize it.

    Your license to marry is a time limited document it isn't the wedding.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana won't recognize hundreds of same-sex marriages that were performed before a federal court halted a lower-court's decision to lift the state's gay marriage ban, the governor's office said Wednesday.

    Maggie, if a clerk illegally or wrongfully issues you a license of any kind, the issuing state can and will invalidate that license when it is discovered.

    You can get re-married, but not without cost. Until one would remarry their spouse, they would be vulnerable to all sorts of unpleasant legal ramifications, especially if one of the spouses passed away.

    Gay people who got married relying on the new state law suddenly NOW find themselves NOT married and unable to GET married. Changes could have been made with assets, etc. that are expensive to unwind.

    But, in this case, it wasn't wrongfully issued. I don't have a dog in the fight, but I consider it an injustice.

    It wasn't because of a new state law, but a wonderful bit of judicial activism.

    The chief executive officer of the state says it was.
