From blog author Betty Greene Salwak: "John is acknowledged by his birth state of Illinois to be male and has changed his Illinois state ID and Social Security card to match. James' California driver's license has "female" as his legal sex. (He does not want to change his legal sex unless they offer T for transgender.) By taking place in Illinois, the marriage is registered as between bride and groom, thereby being recognized in all 50 states and by the federal government."
