    Because there is no such thing as a “gay marriage”. Marriage is only between a man and a woman.

    Texas is under no obligations to play along with a freakshow set up by another state that chose to mock and degrade the concept of marriage by “marrying” a couple couple of homosexuals. There's no marriage, so there's nothing to dissolve with a divorce.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Texas had no part in creating this mess; Texas has no responsibility to untangle it.

    They are residents of this State and legally married.

    They can't get a divorce because they are not married. Only a man and a woman can be married; not two men; and not two women. There is no marriage here, so there is no basis for a divorce. Whatever fault there is is on the part of those who chose to create this mess, by pretending that there can be such a thing as a “marriage” between two men. Texas had no part in this, Texas has no responsibility for solving it, and Texas has no ability to solve it.

    They are residents of this State we are going to have to deal with it sooner or later.

    #1 - I support SSCM.

    #2 - However in this case I need to side with Texas. If the state doesn't recognize Civil Marriages from other states, then how can they be responsible for dissolving the Civil Marriage?

    #3 - To me the simpler solution is for Statex to amend their divorce laws and then apply them consistently:

    A. For marriages which were initiated outside the state, then _______ months of residency is required, or

    B. For marriages initiated in the state, the residency requirement is waived.



    If you go to MA and get married and then move to Texas (as an example) for whatever reason (personal choice, job relocation, military orders, etc.) and need a divorce - then you can apply back in MA (as the originating state) no matter where your residence is. Such a modified law would apply equally to different-sex marriages and same-sex marriages as there is no gender based qualifying factor.

    The constitution requires states to recognize civil marriages performed in other states.
