First Same-Sex Couple Marries in Texas

Austin – Today Suzanne Bryant and Sarah Goodfriend became the first same-sex couple to legally marry in Texas. They received their marriage license from Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir in Austin, accompanied by their two daughters. The news follows an order on Tuesday from State Judge Guy Herman in which he struck down Texas’ ban on marriage between same-sex couples.

Evan Wolfson, president of Freedom to Marry, released the following statement:

“This is a historic day for fairness and equality in Texas. The family that Suzanne and Sarah have built together over more than three decades of commitment to each other mirrors the love between so many same-sex couples in Texas, all of whom deserve the freedom to marry. The 5th Circuit should quickly affirm Texas’ lower court ruling and ensure the freedom to marry across the Lone Star State.”

A marriage case out of Texas is currently awaiting a ruling from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals along with cases out of Louisiana and Mississippi.
