  •  it's across the board inequality in texas (7+ / 0-)

    i.e. anyone who's not married to the person who owns/rents the home, hetero or not, is persona non grata, whose presence could be used against a parent in a custody dispute;

    if this "morals" clause in the judgment was a usual one contained in the language of any judgment of divorce, for example as we have in NYS, that the wife who wants to go back to using a former name, may do so,

    then it seems this judge didn't make it up: "...Judge John Roach Jr., a Republican who presides over the 296th District Court, enforced the “morality clause” in Compton’s divorce papers..."

    wonder if such clause was ever in anyone else's divorce judgment...
