Lawsuits filed in Texas question marriage equality DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff After the Obergefell marriage equality decision, we advised: Just because you can get married doesn’t mean you should get married.

While that advice still stands, we add a caveat: Get married while you can. At least give it some serious thought. At least two lawsuits have been filed in Texas that question marriage equality.

That wasn’t a serious concern until the Dobbs decision that reversed the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling and Justice Clarence Thomas invited cases that would revisit the marriage ruling.
