Judge: TX Lesbian Couple Can’t Cohabit

A north Texas judge has forbid a lesbian couple from living together, citing a “morality clause” in one of the women’s divorce papers. The clause—ubiquitous in divorce cases—is intended to stop a divorced parent from having a different love interest sleep over while children are in the home. If the lesbian couple was heterosexual instead, they could simply get married to make the clause null. But in Texas, where same-sex marriage isn’t recognized, they’re stuck. As a result of a judge’s ruling Tuesday, Carolyn Compton’s partner, Page Price, will be forced to move out of the home where they currently live with Compton’s two daughters.
