Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
It is very unfair, in my opinion, that people who were issued a license and got married now find out they aren't. IOW, the governor should have immediately acted to stop issuance of marriage licenses to these people.
Thank you, Quazi!

So here is the thing....the license was issued and used in a legal and appropriate manner. (The weddings were conducted and that is what the license is allowing). Once done you can't make the legally issued license null and void and retroactively then say the wedding wasn't legal. To go to your examples:They reserve the right to do that with every other kind of license they issue.....business license, liquor license, to practice law, to appraise realestate, to drive......I don't see why the marriage license should be any different; it's not like you have to brake up if your license is voided.
Business license--yes you can revoke it because the business is still active....what you can't do is revoke it and say that all business conducted under the legal license in the past is no longer valid.
Liquor license--same thing. A liquor license is active and let's say you sell for 5 years....then it is revoked. You stop selling....you can't get charged with bootlegging for those 5 years.
Practice Law--again...same thing. Prior to the license going invalid for ANY REASON the cases do not have to be retried.
Should I go on?
The license for weddings were used and the nature of them is that they are a one shot deal. Like a liquor license you might buy to sell wine at a fund raiser. Once used up it is no longer usable but anything that happened while it was valid is still legal. Pence is playing fast and loose with his authority and he will pay for it in the long run. I already see that happening within his own party.
