The difference being that Marlena didn't lie, cheat and manipulate to make it that way. They also had a wedding that they both wanted desperately. Several... actually. Kristen may consider it one, John hasn't ever, since he found out.

John was never married to Kristen.
He was married to Susan Banks.
The marriage certificate would have said Kristen Blake/Di Mera, not Susan Banks. And he lived as man and wife with Kristen until Susan locked her up. Its understandable why anyone would say John & Kristen were married, the marriage would have been registered that way. It is not a retconn.
They didn't refer to it that way at the time. The two of them not being married was a pivotal part of the reveal.
Just because JER didn't spin it that way doesn't change the legal position. But yes, who can forget Marlena's voice going all high pitched "You're not even married to him!" in her showdown with Kristen lol?
John and Marlena consider themselves married because they lived as man and wife and thought they were married. For a brief period, John thought the same with Kristen...
