Unless I'm mistaken marriage requires a license before any magic words and hand waving are performed by civil or religious authority. Opposite sex marriages are already civil unions IMO. Try getting out of one.
Sin, if there is such a thing, can freely be lived in by those of any sexual orientation. Personally I could skip the guilt trip.
If my parent's second marriage was about insurance fraud were they living in sin? I gave my mother away. Does that make me an accomplice? Love didn't seem to live in the house either time.
