Diggs said that, despite whether people feel positively or negatively about the ruling, it is likely the most significant Supreme Court decision of this generation, as it opens up the right to marry to an entire group of people for whom this right was previously unavailable.
On Friday alone, the Harris County Clerk’s office began putting the new law into practice by issuing about 50 marriage certificates to newly-eligible couples.
According to Diggs, her law firm and other family lawyers have already dealt with custody issues involving same-sex couples. “Now of course, same-sex couples will be able to marry and they will be able to divorce, whether they were married in this state or in some other state,” Diggs stated.
