    They should swamp county clerks' offices and get those nuptials recorded while they can. Even if a stay is ordered, when the SCOTUS eventually upholds all these lower court rulings, the states will be forced to retroactively recognize those marriages.

    •  Let's hope the state will have to recognize them. (0+ / 0-)

      Utah responded by placing the marriages on hold. Hard for me to imagine something more offensive.

      •  Michigan could pull a "Utah" (1+ / 0-)

        (But please note I said) when the SCOTUS eventually upholds all these lower court rulings, the states will be forced to retroactively recognize those marriages.

        Once this issue is resolved, all marriages will be recognized, regardless. Utah and Michigan may even have to pay retroactive compensation for benefits withheld, refund taxes for partner insurance inappropriately withheld, etc.
