Greg Abbott Can’t Overturn True Marriage

Greg Abbott Can’t Overturn True Marriage August 1, 2014

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed an appeal to reverse the ruling that found the state’s ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional made by a US District Court back in February.

In his brief, which feebly tried to defend the ban, Attorney General Abbott made the claim that (emphasis my own) [because] same-sex relationships do not naturally produce children, recognizing same-sex marriage does not further these goals to the same extent that recognizing opposite-sex marriage does.

This hits home hard for me. Not just as a candidate for office that proudly supports marriage equality, but as a Texan, a member of the LGBTQ community, and a future husband.

For the past 3 years, I have been engaged to a wonderful woman. Her name is Shayrah Akers. She is the love of my life. Her 11-year-old daughter, Kylie, is an amazing little girl I consider and raise as my own.

Shayrah and I are unfortunately unable to have children of our own.

In light of these circumstances, I have a question for you, Attorney General Greg Abbott: If my fiancee and I were to go down to the Denton County courthouse right now and get our marriage license, would you try to stop us?
