    WAY TO GO, TEXAS!! You're doing a fine job of eliminating SSM's
    If you think about it (which they obviously did not) why would you move to a state where not only is SSM not legal but, also SS divorce?

    Again, I smell a rat here.

    I know right now to anybody honest, educated and objective the "traditional" argument completely fails because its made up.
    By accepted as legitimate, I meant a majority of people used to favor excluding same sex couples, and the media used to be a lot nicer to those people.

    Maybe they moved there to pursue happiness. Maybe they moved there because of work, or maybe they just like the weather.

    They should be treated as divorced anyway, homosexual unions are not a legal marriage in TX, how can they divorce that which does not exist? Good for them for sticking to their laws and principals.

    yeah its pretty funny
    bu not divorcing them there will be in fact one more SSM couple in the US.

    This is exactly why states should have no say in such matters and soon they wont, at least not to this extent. Just move proof leaving this a state issue is wrong and a complete failure.

    Makes no difference to me. Either way, I'm fine with it.

    They didn't move here so they could get a divorce.

    Why put yourselves in this predicament unless you have ulterior motives or zero forethought.

    Thank you for making my point. It's agenda driven.

    yep or a million other legit logical reasons to people may decided to move within the united states of america. Anybody acting like they should be banned from the state is asinine.

    or maybe they did go there to push the issue (which is much less likely) but even if they did, fighting for equal rights is also a great reason, just like women and minorities etc did before them.
