Same sex marriages aren't recognized in Georgia or South Carolina. But there could still be changes for how states recognize the unions.
The two-state won't have to allow gay marriages to be performed but there will be indirect changes. U-S-C law professor Derek Black says now that the -federal- government -has- to take note of same-gender marriages, South Carolina will have to recognize those marriages performed in other states.

He says, “Does South Carolina have to let same-sex couples get married in the state of South Carolina, recognize that? No. But if someone's married from outside the state, South Carolina doesn't really have a good reason for saying, 'Well, you're not married when you come into our state.”
