typically the requirements are only to get a marriage license in the first place. There aren't any checks and balances to ensure that once the marriage license is issued that a person still has the same name, gender or even physical address that they had when the license was issued. once you're married in the eyes of the state, the marriage cannot be dissolved without one of the parties initiating it.
that said, when children are involved and the couple goes through a divorce, there can be many complications resulting from a gender change especially when the state doesn't recognize same sex marriage or allow the individual to change their birth certificate.
The marriage is still legal. But if she were to be divorced and tried to get married again (to a woman) post-op, then it wouldn't be recognized in a state that does not allow same-sex marriage. All depends on each state law, but i'm sure these are all lawsuits that will eventually make their way up to each state's supreme court.
That being said, I imagine that what Amy said is right and that the state will likely stay out of it. Although, he's from Florida, and that's an area where the state might go more hard line against any unclear marriage definition.
Like I said, fascinating.
If you don't understand the fundamentals of a situation, then you shouldn't be arguing about it. If you want to be angry about someone's sexual identity, at least go read a fucking book about the subject so that you don't look like a tremendous ignoramus every time you spout something off.

A transgender "women" is not the same as a natural born women. They may look similar postop but they do not share the same identity. The never will.

usually a discussion goes both ways, but here it's just one person pretending to know what he's talking about and a bunch of others showing him how stupid he's being.
