    There's absolutely no way to read that second provision in light of the first and conclude that it "may" have banned all marriages, unless of course, you're a candidate in a primary who is looking to stir up some headlines and raise name awareness.

    If I had to do it all over again, I would marry my wife again, but there would be a difference. I would give the government a big, fat middle finger.
    As long as "married" couples get special rights than the rest of us, then yes it is very much governments business.

    Your forefathers did not have special tax rules for married couples, nor there was laws on who got the children, since children were the property of the man of the house, not the woman. There are many other differences between your (and mine) forefathers and our society today, which it is very dangerous to still rely on 200+ year old laws and rules that have not followed the times.

    I'm not so sure of that. There's a VERY limited number of congress critters that I would have any desire to see naked. Sure, there's a couple that I wouldn't mind, but there's a lot more of this:

    "This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage."
    I'm afraid I don't see how this could be construed as a ban on all marriage. If marriage has legal status, this only says you cannot create or recognize an equivalent - e.g. a civil union.

    Actually, no, I am not. I am just pointing out that Texas is a state governed by a collection of backwards inbred southern-fried idiots.

    Texas banned all marriage because they failed to check their wording in the bill that became law.

    Texas has always been a taco short of a combo plate; there is no denying this fact.

    Let's suppose you are right, in practice, you would still be wrong. People get married every year here, all the time. The contracts are even signed legal documents acceptable to both federal and state authorities.

    you are wrong, and gays don't get ****.

    Depending on who's saying, that's actually a compliment.

    And yet, our own politicians represent us better than any other state. (Points at Chuck Hopson)
