    The section of DOMA that he cited isn’t “out of the way”. Only the section that banned the federal government from recognizing marriages performed in states that allow it was struck down. The sections that allow states to make their own laws and to refuse to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples from other states weren’t included in the suit or in the ruling.

    It will be interesting to see whether the Texas Court will recognise the validity of the Mass. marriage. IMO Willet is right they cannot grant a divorce unless they do.

    And if the court does then grant the divorce the game’s up.
    I love that phrase ” irrational animus” against homosexuals.
    Are you listening Family Research Council, and all that list of irredeemable bigots out there,…… “IRRATIONAL”, – that means without reason, without intellect, without thought……..

    All states have residency requirements for filing divorce. They’d need to live in MA for 6 months or so. Just another way the US is fundamentally messed up.

    You should have noted that the entire (yep, all of them) Texas Supreme Court is made up of Republican Party officials. The Texas Republican platform explicitly calls for the recriminalization of the very relationships before the court.
