All Marriage Outlawed in Texas? Attorney Barbara Ann Radnofsky makes the argument that a 2005 Texas constitutional amendment aimed at banning gay marriage actually succeeded in banning all marriage.

  1. "This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

    That's...remarkable. Would've taken eight words to "correct" - specifically "other than that created in Section A above."

    I'm still waiting for any governor to call out the National Guard to deal with couples who try to get divorced - seems that should be a part of the "Defense of Marriage Act"... Why is the divorce rate so high if there are federal laws defending it?
