    on the Federal level, but does it allow the states to ignore the Full Faith and Credit Clause when marriage is involved?

      But the Supreme Court allows states to ignore the FF&CC in certain instances involving marriage (e.g., age, IIRC), and the fear is that if a suit were brought on that basis it would lose.

      So no one has yet pushed a suit along those lines, relying more on 14th amendment arguments.
