A judge has ruled that a Texas lesbian couple can't cohabitate, or live together, because of a morality clause in one of the women's divorce papers.
Such a clause is common in divorce cases in Texas and other states.
It is designed as an actual legal means of preventing a divorced parent from having a romantic partner spend the night while children are in the home.
If a couple marries, they can get out from under the legal provision, but that's not an option for gay couples in Texas, where gay marriage is not legal.
In the divorce of Carolyn and Joshua Compton, Collin County District Judge John Roach Jr. enforced the terms detailed in their 2011 divorce papers.
