Is June 26 the day for LGBT Right to Marry?

Did you know I started a new blog on LGBT family law rights in Texas? Today I posted about the significance of the date June 26 in the LGBT rights movement. The significant case of Lawrence v. Texas, which held unconstitutional statutes criminalizing homosexual conduct, was handed down by the US Supreme Court on June 26, 2003. And, the Windsor opinion finding portions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional as applied to same sex couples, came out on June 26, 2013. So, it is significant that the US Supreme Court announced late last week that they are having an opinion-issue date this Friday, June 26, 2015. Most people believe that the Obergefell decision on the rights of same sex couples to marry will come out that day.
