    bet it will work for stupid but not ok with the other jesus that is: civil and tax law, SS status, ownership. If stupid could to un tangle the marriage concept from everything else all good. Just real world that is not going to happen.

    as a nation with modern laws; just cant have a legal status in one state, drive 20 minutes to the next state and have a different sit. Basic laws need to take presidence.

    I lived in Alabama for a couple of years, and I can't recall it being a destination for marriages or honeymoons, as in some other states. Still, I wonder if they'll see any impact on the tourist industry as a result of this, if it becomes law? I suspect not, or negligible.

    It is amazing how the Southern States act as though they are not legally bound by the US Supreme Court law which has settled this and how everyone in the nation has stated the obvious.

    uombroca saidIt is amazing how the Southern States act as though they are not legally bound by the US Supreme Court law which has settled this and how everyone in the nation has stated the obvious.

    This same attitude led to the US Civil War. Southern States believed in the principle of "nullification", which meant they could nullify, or make inapplicable to them, whatever Federal laws or rulings they chose.

    That belief apparently persists today.

    If the report of this bill is accurate then conservatively minded judges in AL might also take to view that divorcees can't be married either. That'll mean chaos...

    You mean all the divorced (and remarried) Senators and Representatives standing on the presidential rally stage won't be legally married? And they'll be committing an abomination before God? Well, I suppose the American people, too.
