"Things happen" even thay when people are married by a religous cerimoni. And in coutries that have civil marrige things are are controlled by nationel laws. So if you are not joking do not worry. Let people arrenge their "marrisge" in a legal way, with or without religious ceremonies. I believe that todays people and todays society can do that.
