Long ago (i.e. pre-URL) I read a similar story about a married couple who celebrated his and her wedding day on two different dates. During WW2 they were engaged, but he was called for war service before they had had an opportunity to arrange a marriage. They both feared that he might be lost in a battle, and if that happened they would want to be married.

So they had a marriage over military radio: She went to the nearest military camp, with her priest, and called up the station where the groom was located, where he had an army priest available, and they gave their "I do!" over the radio.

The thing was, the groom was stationed in the Pacific, across the date line. So although they were married at the same GMT time, the date was different for the two. The story as I heard it didn't reveal whether their marriage certificate stated one, the other or both dates, only that the groom returned safely home, and every year thereafter they celebrated for two days, one day for her and one day for him.

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
