The Law is one of the reasons we're still in the closet.
The handfasting ceremony we had, if found out by the authorities, would only seal our fate.
Unless a/the judge/s just don't care/don't consider it worth their time. Lord knows plenty of silly outdated laws remain on the books, and politicians don't bother to repeal them. Because you don't get any points for repealing old laws, only for passing new laws.
Of course, politicians also tend to perceive themselves as being above the Law ...
