Freedom to Marry

HB 130 – Anchia

HJR 34 – Coleman
SB 98 – Hinojosa
SJR 13 – Rodriguez
In 2003 the Texas Legislature passed the “Texas Defense of Marriage Act,” eliminating the freedom to marry for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Texans in same-sex relationships. In 2005 the Texas constitution was similarly amended. Restricting the freedom to marry runs counter to basic Texas values like self-determination and the freedom of people to live their lives without government interference. Both the Texas Constitution and Texas Statute should be amended so that all Texans have the freedom to marry the person they love.
