Churches already refuse marriages

There is a long-standing precedent for a church refusing to perform marriages based on its beliefs. The Catholic Church does not recognize divorce. If a couple asks to be married in the church and one of them is divorced with a surviving spouse, they will be refused.

They can, of course, get married somewhere else, but they cannot be married in a Catholic church.
