As is usually the case, the law is whatever the bureaucrat de jour says the law is. If you get past that vichy asshole, then it's good unless challenged. No one would have cause, let alone standing, to challenge the marriage besides the participants. So, the real question is whether you've advised them to get a good pre-nup.

Just FYI, a ships captain isn't allowed to perform marriages unless he/she is a judge, justice of the peace, minister or officially recognized official, notary or what not. That's in the US, other countries have different laws. I asked about performing weddings last year here in Florida and received the same non committal answer. What to do?

I appreciate how they're maintaining the fiction this was a "Pentagon" decision and not directly brokered by the White House.

its not for the state to decide what is or is not a 'valid' religion, right? dudeism is just as legit as anything else would be I would think. but we are in the backwards ass bible belt and my opinion doesn't count for anything I reckon. I live in GA and am getting married here sometime next year... fianc? is catholic, certainly not getting married in the church but not sure who will perform the ceremony. if you find out any more details please let us know, i'd like to know my options here.
take 'er easy

Hope you win in the end Reb... Sorting it out. Personally, I just look at it like this: If captains of a fucking boat (even if it's practically a bathtub) have rights to do it, why can't anyone else?
(Also sorta bummed there's a state that refutes ULC? wtf....)

These responses are great...
I mean process, in a lot of ways is better than product.... I guess that sounds stupid but I don't know how else to put it; Discussion of Dudeism? Oh ya. Lotta ins, lotta outs...
As usual, the clerk was useless. She said "Oh we wouldn't know which religions are recognized in Georgia." How would they not know that? They are the entity that issues the marriage licenses, and should know what religions qualify to legally perform a marriage. She did mention having IRS exemption as a religion, and was snarky that most ministers wouldn't have to call and ask this question. When I explained it was on online ordination she said "most of those sound like businesses. Anyone can sign the marriage license and we assume it is legitimate, but the marriage may really not be legal." So it looks like Georgia requires more traditional, established religions.
