Texas Gay Marriage Ban Heads To Appeals Court
Updated: Tuesday, August 5 2014, 07:02 PM CDT
Paul Huddleston and his husband Dustin see themselves as a typical married couple together now for 16 years.
"Dinner every night, nothing crazy, sometimes we are just very, very boring it's your typical married life," Huddleston said.
What's missing for Paul is a marriage certificate from Texas.
"I don't expect it to be a quick and easy fight, it's going to be long and drawn out," Huddleston said.
A judge in San Antonio struck down the Texas gay marriage ban. That ruling now faces a challenge in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, spear headed by Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott.
"There is wide support for the state's rights and for marriage to remain between one man and one woman. That cuts across political lines, across faith lines and across demographic lines," Texas Values Attorney Jonathan Saenz said.
Saenz says federal judges are overstepping their boundaries and marriage is a state not federal issue.
"This issue went to the ballot where the will of the people was clearly expressed. 76 percent of the people going to the polls support marriage between one man and one woman," Saenz said.
Paul worries if the feds don't step in and something happens to him his husband would lose everything.
"Leaving my estate to my husband wouldn't be recognized," Huddleston said.
