''My clients want to move on with their lives, but they've got to do it so there's no financial or political burden left on them with having this marriage kind of sitting out there. It's about recognizing what other states have recognized and allowing those individuals who choose to live in the state of Texas to be able to dissolve their relationship without having to move back to the state where they were married.
