The proper remedy IMHO would be to provide a means by which states can recognize civil unions between arbitrary adult couples who could not legitimately be married. Membership in a civil union would be orthogonal to the propriety of sexual relations either between the union's members, or between a member of the union and someone else. Consequently, such a union would not have to be restricted to persons who are not blood relatives; two widowed siblings, for example, might wish to form a union to care for the children they bred with their late spouses. The siblings would not be considered spouses, but each would be co-guardian of the other's children, and each would have survivorship rights in the other's estate.
Oddly, however, civil union laws often expressly forbid siblings from forming unions, even though since civil unions are supposedly "not about sex" incest should be a non-factor.

The blame for Anthony Kennedy lies with Reagan. Reagan had 3 Sup Court picks, and two of them were terrible. The O’Connor pick was worse than Kennedy since the GOP controlled the Senate when he chose her, but he should never have settled on Kennedy.
According to the article, the guy has not died yet, but may die very soon. So, the death certificate would be issued in the locality where he actually dies.
The state of Ohio should issue automatic annulments to same sex couples married out of state.
