D.C. Won’t Accept Mark Reed + Dante Walkup’s Texan Skype Wedding

Unsurprisingly Washington D.C. does not think highly of Mark Reed and Dante Walkup’s attempt to use a Skype in Texas to become legally married there: D.C.’s marriage bureau has rejected the couple’s application, because the ceremony did not take place within the district.

That’s correct: While Sheila Alexander-Reid officiated from D.C., Mark and Dante were in Texas, where all marriages marriages might be illegal. It’s not that D.C. doesn’t want two men getting married — the city already took care of that — but just that they follow the rules.

So maybe the Dallas Morning News has a new excuse for rejecting their wedding announcement: there wasn’t a real wedding.
