Rucker, Justice.
The question raised in this opinion is whether a marriage solemnized in another state in violation of that state’s law may be recognized as valid in this state if the marriage complies with this state’s law. The answer is yes.
Conclusion (slip op. at 8):  The trial court granted McCardle’s motion to dismiss based on the lack of standing. We affirm the judgment of the trial court albeit on a different theory.

Shepard, C.J., and Dickson, Sullivan and Boehm, JJ., concur.
