If I'm going out of my way to find the negative then I would say that it doesn't sound that they have changed the "normal" marriage procedures, but merely added these extra, optional methods.

So most people will still get "real marriages" and the "other people" can get their legal equivalent.

At least that's how it reads to me, that this isn't replacing the existing procedures, just adding new ones.

The bill would also end the practice of requiring a marriage be “solemnized” by a minister or someone else licensed to perform a ceremony. Current law requires a minister, judge, retired judge or person otherwise authorized to perform a ceremony to sign the marriage license before it is recorded.

Under the new law, the affidavit and forms would constitute a legal marriage, as long as they are submitted within 30 days of being signed by the two parties.

“The state shall have no requirement for any ceremony or proceeding and whether or not a ceremony proceeding is performed or not performed shall have no legal effect on the validity of the marriage,” the law notes.


I mean yes. If you're religious, you can still go to the church, have your ceremony, etc etc. But legally speaking, they have absolutely dropped those requirements.
Yes, dropped the requirement to have a marriage license. So most people can still choose to get one, and everyone else can just get the new thing.

I mean it's still better, this is just me squinting to find the negative.

Apparently Trump was embarrassed enough to delete the original tweet for spelling Biden "Bidan", but not ashamed enough of the contents to avoid reposting it:

He's claiming Kim called Biden a low IQ individual? Am I reading that right?
I'm not sure who this MI guy is but he sounds sexy.

Is it a possible way to circumvent or undermine Obergefell in some way? That's the only thing I can think of

It's a policy that must have some use for proponents of conservative marriage but I don't know what it is


Yeah, it's this. It is to let homophobic judges who don't want to give gay couples marriage licences save face with a loophole instead of getting a judge that actually respects the ruling.

The legislation came in response to the Supreme Court’s landmark 2015 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. Some probate judges in Alabama quit issuing marriage licenses, citing their objections to being forced to sign licenses to same-sex couples.
DPOblivion was far more determined than me.

Read literally, yes it does say that. However, he's probably(?) referring to NK State Media saying that a few days ago.

Yeah I missed that story. This makes more sense.

Yeah, but saving face is all it lets them do as far as I can tell. This doesn't let Alabama actually deny anything to anybody beyond the three criteria I mentioned when I posted the article.

Brexit Party wins in a landslide - look they've crushed Tories and Labour combined. Liberal Democrats in 2nd.
September 1, 2003; November 4, 2007; September 2, 2013
Congratulations to DP Oblivion in the Guru Contest!
It wasn't a landslide. They got 31% of the vote (only 4% more than Farage got last time despite the Tories collapsing), total pro-brexit vote was under 35%. The pro-remain vote was over 40%. This was a pretty good win for remain. The main frustration is that if Change UK hadn't run against the Lib Dems, there are FOUR brexit party seats that would have gone Lib Dem. The main takeaway from this election is that it is very important to not split the vote - a remain alliance, even if it was only Green+Lib Dem would have come first easily. But as a remainer I'll take this result, now to cancel brexit.

Anyway, since the EU election is incredibly important, here's how it went across the continent:

GUE-NGL (Left/Far-left, eurosceptic): 38 (-14)
S&D (Socialists&Social Democrats): 150 (-41)
Greens/EFA (Greens&Regionalists): 70 (+20)
ALDE (Liberals, eurofederalists): 107 (+40)
EPP (Centre-right): 179 (-43)
ECR (Conservatives, nationalists, eurosceptic): 58 (-12)
EFDD (Populists, eurosceptic): 56 (+8)
ENF (Nationalists, far-right): 58 (+21)

So all in all big gains for the liberals (Here liberal=centre, generally speaking), gains for the greens, and limited gains for the various right wing eurosceptic groups. Bad news for the establishment as the commission has been run by an EPP/S&D coalition since its formation and they lost their majority. Europe didn't really go left or right but fragmented in all directions, which may ultimately be good for democracy.
I just decided to change this sig.
