Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said:So this is my impression of Republicans: "Gay marriage is bad! If you get one, you must stay in it! But I can divorce my fourth wife! HA! Got ya now!"
"In the State of Texas, marriage is – and has always been – a union between one man and one woman.
"To prevent other states from imposing their values on this state, Texas voters overwhelmingly approved a Constitutional amendment specifically defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.
"Because the parties' Massachusetts-issued arrangement is not a marriage under Texas law, they are asking a Texas court to recognise – and dissolve – something that does not legally exist."
