A Texas judge struck down the state's same-sex marriage ban Tuesday, a decision that could clear the way for same-sex marriages in the Lone Star state.
The decision came from Travis County Probate Judge Guy Herman, who ruled as part of an estate case. The case involves an Austin woman looking to get her eight-year relationship with her late partner recognized as a common-law marriage. (Video via KXAN)
"We were actually in the process of planning to have a family," said Sonemaly Phrasavath, the woman seeking to get her marriage recognized.
