  •  I suspect that any Catholic (0+ / 0-)

    who really has an issue about divorced people getting married in the Church would nevertheless have no trouble recognizing legal marriages outside the Church because they're thinking of it as a slightly different thing. That is, "married in the eyes of the law" and "married within the Church" are just two different categories. I've never heard of any Catholic hospital requiring any married couple to prove that they were married within the Catholic Church before they would be treated as a married couple (otherwise, Jewish, Protestant and atheist couples would be considered to be unmarried), so one can hope that the distinction will continue to carry over into equal treatment of same-sex couples that are also married in the eyes of the law.
