Same-Sex Marriage in Texas As the years go by, many states from the United States of America are legalizing same-sex marriage. Texas is back in the dust by still not allowing same-sex couples the ability to get married. I cannot think of many reasons as to why marriage is not open for every kind of two people who love each other, should be illegal.

Being that now the White House is filled with Republicans it is a possible chance that same-sex marriage may or may not occur soon. But the charisma does not stop there; the other day when I was in the grocery store waiting for my parents to finish paying the items, I strolled around until I found a newspaper stand. The front cover of the newspaper contained the first same-sex women couple to be married here in the Rio Grande Valley. What astonished me the most was that they only reason the same-sex couple was getting married in Texas occurred because one the ladies was dying from cancer and only had a few days left to live. It seems as if happiness now contains a price and that it will not come as easy as it used to. In other countries, this would not be a problem; rather it would just be a normal relationship which is valid for the average person and still
