More on Maryland’s Out-of-State Marriage Recognition

February 25, 2010

Chris Geidner has a lot more detail on the opinion released yesterday by Maryland’s Attorney General on whether Maryland should recognize out of state marriages and what exactly the decision means legally.  A really interesting read.

The other update is that shortly after the release, Attorney General Gansler clarified that Maryland would immediately recongnize marriages performed in other states and provide the rights that those marriages receive in those states.  The Geidner piece has more on how the Defense of Marriage Act limits these recognitions, though.
