But here's what would happen: The federal response would be to create a national marriage certificate, which would be required in order to get some sort of monetary benefit (paid for by tax payers of the future, of course). Probably a tax "deferment" fiat, just like the deportation deferments being created by presidential fiat.
The next response should come from states' attorneys, who reject federal dictates under the constituional protection of the tenth amendment. When the US Supreme Court then rejects the tenth amendment, the country will know what is next, and the second civil war will begin in order to restore constitutional government.
In my opinion, after much blood, that will fail but internal control will be sketchy until troops are stationed virtually everywhere. Except the borders, of course. In the meantime, China will expand unexpectedly right up to the US borders, and finding the US to be incredibly weak, will finally act toward a world government.
But wait. That would be a slippery slope scenario. There is no slippery slope, just ask any SJW. For example, there is no slippery slope to increased racial tension because we elected a half-black twice (that would be the same as electing a full-black once, right?). So all we need to do is focus on eliminating whites (ask any black panther). Another example is the sexual freedom that exists in the USA (except on government controlled campuses, of course, where men are suspects because of their cis-cender, and guilty of rape if they actually do have sex). So the only slope is the SJW slope toward total freedom from absolutely all traditional, rational restrictions which might exist in a rational, civilized society (a rational civilization would recognize and treat all mental disorders, instead of institutionalizing them).
There is no longer anyplace globally to go where insanity is not the rule. There is no New World, no wilderness, no new continent, no safe harbor for sane people. The entire planet is now owned and controlled, and those in control are either communist, Communist (capital C), or proto-communist (or some form of Islamic Terrorist dictatorship) . Without forcible revolution and forcible control for maintaining actual constitutional government, the world dictatorship (Global Union of Socialist States) is inevitable. By eliminating all traditional morality, inevitability of SJW amorality and immorality is created and guaranteed.
The Brave New World has started in SCOTUS. Here's the indicator:

It is now presupposed that the federal government may interfere in any and all parts of life, without any nasty constitutional impediments to their dictates. That is the definition of dictatorship.
"“No union is more profound than marriage,” Kennedy wrote, joined by the court’s four more liberal justices.
“From their beginning to their most recent page, the annals of human history reveal the transcendent importance of marriage. The lifelong union of a man and a woman always has promised nobility and dignity to all persons, without regard to their station in life. Marriage is sacred to those who live by their religions and offers unique fulfillment to those who find meaning in the secular realm. Its dynamic allows two people to find a life that could not be found alone, for a marriage becomes greater than just the two persons. Rising from the most basic human needs, marriage is essential to our most profound hopes and aspirations,” Kennedy wrote."
