She cannot "un" witness your marriage.

This answer is for general education purposes only. It does not create an attorney-client relationship or provide legal guidance or advice. The answer is based on the limited information provided within the question and the answer might be different had additional information been provided. For legal inquiries all persons are recommended to consult an attorney in your state.


I agree, she cannot "unwitness." Someone trying to do so is admitting she was either lying when she acted as witness, or lying that she was not there. Sounds like a strange situation, but certainly nothing that will affect your marriage.
