Wyoming Fails To Keep Foreign Gay Marriages From Demanding Recognition

So much for the Wyoming House banning out-of-state gay marriages: a bill to do so missed a procedural deadline Friday, meaning the House adjourned without voting on the matter. Awww, sad! (Truly sad, of course, is that Wyoming still bans in-state gay marriages.)

      I’ve often wondered about recognition of marriages from other countries and how that effects both foreign relations and our own laws regarding marriage. I don’t know but I’d imagine that other countries would get pretty pissed off if you refused to acknowledge unions performed there as valid. I’m sure that any straight married couple from the US would have an absolute fit if they were informed their marriage wasn’t recognized in whatever country they happened to be in.

      Does anyone have any insight into this? Has it ever come up? Could recognition of same-sex unions from other countries have an effect on US laws regarding the subject?
