The same applies to Intersexed people and Transsexuals who are married. Their marriages are retroactively invalidated as far as federal law says, no matter how valid they may be at a state level. Having a marriage license is no defence against having inheritance, pension, and child custody taken from you at legislative whim. Though how the legislation is interpreted varies from bureaucrat to bureaucrat.

Passports may also show such people to be unmarried.

It appears to be an unintended consequence of anti-gay legislation, to undermine marriages of long-standing.
