Yeah, he did say that:
Presuming that there were no previous marriages, which Baho has asserted time and again.
My Spidey-Sense is telling me that this has something to do with Baho’s wife’s membership / status in her Mennonite church and their view of the validity of the marriage, and that this is what is carrying the day in this case. That’s an esoteric enough consideration that we probably can’t speak reasonably on the subject.
Since @SerraSemper has participated in (at least part of) this thread, maybe we can start there: could there be a complication here that we haven’t considered, due to the Mennonite angle?
