Gays Fight Marriage Residency Law
This is what got me the most....
"In reality, after 38 years, I'm her wife and she's mine,"he added. "We want the document."

How can a state court rule on what other states do? I am confused as to the legality of this.For true conversion, click here.

Since other states must recognized contracts entered into regardless of where they were entered into, states where same sex marriage is prohibited will have a little problem. Either they recognize those marriages and thus go against their own state laws or they don't recognize them based on DoMA. If those states decide not to recognize those contracts, then we have a conflict and potentially this could go all the way to the SC.
I don't think these couples have a chance based on the argument by the lawyer representing them, but you never know.
