For example my parents were married in a Church, and the church records show them being married on that date, and as far as the church was concerned they were married. However as far as the gov't was concerned they were still unmarried until a few months later when they were "legally married" by the state

.....because I wasn't even thinking about DOMA when I posted, but DOMA seems to be your whole world.d. A member may be separated for violation of laws or regulations regarding sexual conduct of members or
the Armed Forces, for example, engaging or attempting to engage in a homosexual act or soliciting another to
engage in such an act; for stating that he or she is homosexual or bisexual, or words to that effect, or for
marrying or attempting to marry an individual of the same sex.

Repeal the law and I will go along with it no problem but stop making us things you know nothing about. I could be an Ordained Minister for all you know, and might have been for over 30 years.
