    Collin County's John Roach, Jr. enforces 'morality clause' in divorce papers saying woman cannot have "roommate" unless they're married [in a state that does not offer same sex marraige].

    A woman with children becomes divorced.
    She finds a lesbian partner.
    Custody battle with ex-husband comes up.
    Judge slaps her with a morality clause: your female partner has to leave the house after 9 p.m.--no overnight stays.

    A homosexual man cannot leave his children alone with his partner.

    Case #2

    Jim, partner of Lon for 34 years goes into a nursing home with Alzheimer's.
    His sister obtains guardianship.
    Lon is ordered to not enter the facility where Jim is.
    Lon is ordered to move out of his house in two weeks.
    Lon sells his wedding ring to pay for gas to get to his mother's place in Oklahoma.

    Lon noticed blisters on Jim, then love handles.
    Paramedics refused to take Jim to the hospital.
    The blisters opened.
    Lon tricked Jim to leave the house in order that he go to an emergency room. From the emergency room he went to a nursing home.

    The sister visited the nursing home, saw the blisters, and accused Lon of abuse and called adult protective services. She got a lawyer, did not mention her brother's relationship with Lon or the power of attorney Lon had. She, then, was declared her brother's guardian.

    The sister's best friend was the president of the local bank which gave the homosexual couple a 15-year mortgage. They had three years left on the mortgage when she had Lon evicted.

    When Lon challenged the guardianship, the court date kept being postponed.

    Lon's attorney who specializes in LGBT estate planning and probate law said, "A court-appointed guardian supersedes powers of attorney."

    (Lon cared for Jim and his sister's mother when she died.)

    The attorney also said, in Texas, same-sex couples need a declaration of guardianship: that would have stopped a family from doing an end run-around.

    When Lon tried to contact Jim by phone, his sister had put on her brother's nursing home door: "No Outside Phone Calls."

    Maybe Lon could have included Jim's sister in the care of her brother at the point when the blisters appear and he was having a hard time getting his lover help?
