DALLAS – After the joy of a wedding and the adoption of a baby came arguments that couldn't be resolved, leading Angelique Naylor to file for divorce. That left her fighting both the woman she married in Massachusetts and the state of Texas, which says a union granted in a state where same-sex marriage is legal can't be dissolved with a divorce in a state where it's not.
A judge in Austin granted the divorce, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is appealing the decision. He also is appealing a divorce granted to a gay couple in Dallas, saying protecting the "traditional definition of marriage" means doing the same for divorce.
A state appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments in the Dallas case on Wednesday.
Uh, ... Umm, I never had heard the argument in favor of protecting the traditional definition of divorce. I suppose the government of Texas (Mottos: "We'll secede when we wish." and "We have plenty of money, so we don't mind taking absurd stands and using tax dollars to support our whims.") has in interest in trying keep a torrent of married gays from moving to Texas to savor the liberties therein, such as constant religious-know-nothing propaganda about what God wants.
