    Back to the OP, all this couple has to do as far as Texas is concerned is to go their own ways If they want a divorce in the traditional sense, shouldn't that happen where SS divorce is legal.
    I don't think since the fed has to recognize the marriage from MA. If Texas is not willing to grant a divorce that marriage still holds from MA

    Funny you should mention that.

    This whole issue is about state's rights.

    yes it is, its an issue of what rights take precedence over each other and eventually like in other cases the states are going to lose.

    That would be in error.

    The couple, since DOMA Section 3 is not operative, can be married in MA, move to Texas and still file Federal Taxes as Civilly Married. Even though Texas doesn't recognize the Civil Marriage it is still valid in 13 States, DC, and considered valid by the Federal government.

    Actually, that marriage still holds IN Ma. Texas sees it differently.
