That would strike me as oddly formalistic and meaningless -- obeying the letter of the law but not the spirit, so to speak.

Heh - you say "Po-ta-toe" I say "po-tah-to".....

Because to me it seems exactly the opposite. That doing ones best keep the vows made would be to honor the spirit of the marriage, despite it's essential legal falseness, whereas utterly ignoring any responsiblitly to the vows on the grounds that the marriage was not a legally binding thing, would be the 'sea-lawyering' approach.
