    The sc rules that states must abide by the full faith and credit clause of the constitution and recognize all LEGAL marriages, regardless of where they were performed.

    A straight couple can get married in canada, or Jamaica, or Mexico, or the Bahamas and there's no question that they're legally married. A gay couple that gets married in Canada, and they might as well not have bothered UNLESS they live in a state that recognizes it.

    That's crazy, and that's exactly the situation that was supposedly resolved by Loving.

    Which was, IMHO, the most appropriately named case ever decided by the court.
