I'm not sure but I don't think so. It was held up in court for a while over language. I think the not recognizing same sex marriages from other states clause would include GA natives going elsewhere to marry.
It doesn't stop same sex couples from getting married. It's just not licensed. Any of the ministers at our center would be more than happy to officiate at any sort of wedding/commitment ceremony/union of two people, etc.
If you, your friends and family, and God (however you define it in your life) consider yourselves married then you are.
All the rest of it is civil or man's law. I know I'm tired of waiting but Women's Suffrage and the Civil Rights Movement didn't happen overnight. There was a Marcus Garvey before there was a Dr. King.
Keep the faith.
