Reports (4)
  • Status is not correct "Status is not ambiguous. Same-sex marriage is legal and practiced in Texas. The Texas law defining marriage exclusively as "one man and one woman" was struck down in Obergefell v. Hodges (2015). The issue is not being reconsidered by the Supreme Court at this time, so the Texas law remains unambiguously invalidated."
  • Newer law has been passed "Obergefell v Hodges supersedes state level laws "
  • Newer law has been passed "Since 2015 since the Supreme Court ruling all states has been forced to perfor same sex marriges and adoptions. So please update this."
  • Status is not correct "Same-sex marriage has been legal in the U.S. state of Texas since the U.S. Supreme Court ruling of Obergefell v. Hodges on June 26, 2015."
