In re J.B., 326 S.W.3d 654 (Tex. Ct. App. 2010)

(court lacks subject matter jurisdiction to hear homosexual divorce case; TX Constitutional provision and related statutory provision defining marriage as between persons of opposite sex did not violate Equal Protection Clause of U.S. Constitution (14th Amend.); rational relationship to legitimate state interest present - the promotion of well-being of children; the general welfare does not require extending marriage option to same-sex couples who are merely members of social units and are not part of a suspect class).
