8. Oddly enough, that fact will someday work in our favor

That pair of first cousins who marry in NC can move to a state where first cousin marriage is illegal, and under the FF&C clause of the US Constitution, they would still be recognized as married. What happens when the SCOTUS applies that same rule to a same-gender couple legally hitched in a marriage equality state who moves to a homophobic state?

Ultimately, that's where victory will be found.
