(rewriting after initial attempt to post) Does the rabbi wish to share how he squares his initially stated logical obstacle for marrying 2 where both are non-Jewish? Has he reconfigured this concern? I can imagine determining to adopt a different legal framework, as in a Noahide approach, to satisfy the concern, but this option would have always been available to the rabbi, so the consideration for doing this now might be as apparent today as it ever was. So it could be good to hear from the rabbi how he has brought forward for himself this original concern.
