    It's the state.

    As you said, their temple had no problem with them being married, and the only reason it wasn't legal is because the STATE wouldn't grant them a license.

    This should have nothing to do with getting married in a church or other house of worship. It has to do with the legality of the marriage.

    And that is an issue for the STATE.
