Ohio Marriages Illegal?

Ohio passed one of the most draconian "defense" of marriage amendments in the country. Some of the results are overturning domestic violence charges against unmarried defendants. My contention is that one of the unintended consequences of this law is to invalidate all marriage licenses issued since the amendment went into effect. Why would I think that? Follow me below the fold.
I would like to know if any legal eagles here might know if my contention might prove correct and if so, who would have standing to file suit. Just a thought at Christmas time.
