Over the weekend, the Church of England announced it will recognize the marriages of those who choose to transition in the time following their heterosexual weddings.
Essentially, the position of the church is the sanctity of marriage trumps the desire of one spouse to transition from male to female or vice versa, according to HuffPost.
The shift was announced late last week, ahead of the General Synod of bishops in York. The statement came after Prudence Dailey, churchwarden of St. Michael at the North Gate in central Oxford, asked if the church's established definition of marriage as a "lifelong and exclusive union between one man and one woman" still applies if one partner has transitioned.
