The centuries-old (dating from 1484) Royal authority governing the practices of heraldry in Great Britain hath updated its code:"(1) A man who contracts a same-sex marriage may impale the arms of his husband with his own
on a shield or banner but should bear his own crest rather than the crests of both parties. The coat of arms of each party to the marriage will be distinguishable (1) by the arms of the individual concerned being placed on the dexter side of the shield or banner and (2) by the crest (when included). When one of the parties to the marriage dies, the survivor may continue to bear the combined arms on a shield or banner."A Startling Herald Of A New Age | The American Conservative
