Marriage was possible. In the sense that I could "marry a cat under a full moon" kinda marriage. I know two gays. They have been "married" in your sense of the word for quite some time. However, without the legal benefits/protections of a state wedding many basic accommodations were denied them (not to mention Fed.gov benefits). For instance one has Fibromyalgia. Due to complications he was hospitalized. The doctors would not allow the other to interfere in medical decisions even though the other has been taking care of him for over a decade, knew the medications, etc. "Family" only. Something as simple as that is what gays are speaking of when they ask for marriage equality. Your wife, assuming you are married, would have been taken into complete confidence in the decision making process without a question asked.
