    Same-sex couples react to Supreme Court rulings

    Still Second Class in TX?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     uppercasey married his husband, John, in California in October 2008, before the ban in that state. He says he was initially excited about Wednesday's Supreme Court ruling, 'but as soon as I read some of the news articles describing the decisions, it sucked for us and for the majority of same-sex couples living in states with state marriage bans.' He went on to say, "This ruling is such an expensive baby step. Is the next step more class action lawsuits?"
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    As I understand the news articles, the SCOTUS ruling says "In states where the marriage is legal" meaning for those progressive states like CA, NY, etc. same-sex couples have full federal benefits. ... What about the couples that live elsewhere in the US? We live in TX, have been legally married since 2008 (CA!) and are we still second-class citizens???
