Chisum - Staples “The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage.”

The state of Texas and the Federal Government have already passed the Defense of Marriage Act, H.R.3396, which defines marriage as the following.

"`In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word `marriage' means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word `spouse' refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.'." Download a PDF version of the bill. Visit the No Nonsense in November website for more details. This bill is so poorly and loosely worded it could also effect those living in common law marriages as well.
