Question about New York recognizing gay marriages from other states

The governor of New York on May 14 ordered all state agencies to recognize gay marriages performed in other states or countries. However, New York itself does not allow gay marriages.

On May 15, the California Supreme Court ruled that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry. However, it is likely that a constitutional amendment banning gay marriages will be on the California ballot in November.

My question is this: what if a gay couple from New York gets married in California, and then the voters of California overturn the California Supreme Court ruling? Would they still be considered married in New York?

  1. For an encore, NY should recognize other states’ driver licenses, as ID but not their own.
