McKinney,Texas Republican Judge John Roach Jr. is enforcing a “morality clause” he put in Carolyn Compton’s divorce papers ordering her partner of almost three years, Page Price, to leave the house the couple shares or Compton will lose custody of her children, according to the Dallas Voice.
The “morality clause” underscores the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. The clause says Compton can only have someone related to her “by blood or marriage” after 9:00pm when her children are home. Since Texas does not allow marriage equality, Page must leave.
“Our children are all happy and well adjusted. By his enforcement, being that we cannot marry in this state, I have been ordered to move out of my home,” Price wrote on her Facebook page. She also noted that Compton’s ex-husband, once charged with stalking Compton, rarely sees their two children with whom she shares custody.
