    But the marriage becomes dissolved in the state's eye as well and by recognizing that the state condones the practice.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      does not dissolve a marriage in the state's eyes, at least not in the United States. The couple must also get a divorce or a civil annulment.

      and has no impact on anyone's marital status - not at the time of marriage, not at the time of divorce or annulment.    No state recognizes any religious wedding, religious divorce, or religious annulment.

      And religious "annulment" isn't even the same concept as a legal annulment which has to do with contract fraud or other circumstances which made the marriage contract void from the very start.
