The constitutionality of same-sex marriage is not a new concept, but is starting to make progress with the ruling of the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision that DOMA was unconstitutional.  Texas is only one of many states where the constitutionally of same-sex marriage ban is currently being challenged.
