The thing is, they can force "the state" to comply, but they can never force acceptance. It's like children playing house. Everyone may smile and say they accept, but privately they are winking and nodding behind their backs.

I think having a state wedding and then a private religios ceramony is the answer

Really? You want your children to have something different then you yourself had?

This is bad. No. I don’t want a civil marriage. I want a real church wedding. If I wanted a civil marraige I’d just go down to Vegas.

It is costing me a lot of time and money to do things right the first time. Now you’re telling me that it counts for nothing. :(

I would go the other way around. Have the real wedding, presided by a priest, take place, and then have the paper work done to satisfy the government.

The State cannot conduct a marriage ceremony. The State can only recognize it. A judge may officiate a wedding which makes him/her nothing more than a public notary witnessing the event.
For example, a birth certificate recognizes the fact the a birth has occurred. The State can only record that the event happened.

Why on Earth do you want to give the State that kind of power over your life? Why in the Hell should you have to ask the government to approve of your marriage, or any marriage for that matter?

Don’t you see the trap you’re walking into?
