A federal judge in San Antonio has ruled that the Texas law banning same-sex marriages is unconstitutional.
However, the judge also issued a stay on the decision, meaning marriage equality is not immediately in effect.
U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia, however, also issued a stay, meaning the bans remain in effect for the time being.
Two gay couples have sued the state aiming to overturn the bans. One lesbian couple had to go to Massachusetts to get married, and they want Texas to recognize the union. A second couple had a courtship of 17 years and say they want to get married here in their home state.
Garcia ruled that the couples met the criteria for a preliminary injunction, including the likelihood of winning the suit. …

"These Texas laws deny plaintiffs access to the institution of marriage and its numerous rights, privileges, and responsibilities for the sole reason that Plaintiffs wish to be married to a person of the same sex."
TEXAS! WHAT! TEXAS!
