Question: "Post-op M2F marries and man they would like to start a family. In light of Christie Littleton's case and it appearing that bezulzebub's spawn may be our next president, what kind of hindrances are they likely to have and could the adoption be annulled at some future time if their marriage is declared 'not between a man and a woman'?
