Two couples are suing in federal court to overturn the gay marriage ban in Texas, while two others are taking to the state's Supreme Court for the state to grant them a divorce. Between the four cases, the ban on gay marriage in Texas could meet its end.
San Antonio District Court judge Orlando Garcia wrote: “This Court holds that Texas' prohibition on same-sex marriage conflicts with the United States Constitution's guarantees of equal protection and due process.”
Austin's city council unanimously passed a resolution supporting marriage equality Thursday morning.
By the end of the day yesterday, state senator Dan Patrick's twitter typos had Conan O'Brien talking about him.
Polls show that a majority of Texans support legal recognition for same-sex couples, but legalizing marriage equality in Texas would require an amendment to the state constitution.
