Houston Judge To Decide Same-Sex Divorce Case
Transgender Male Declared Female By Texas Court

HOUSTON -- A judge began hearing what could be considered one of Houston's most unique divorce cases Wednesday. The lawsuit seeks to end the marriage of two women, one of whom was once a man.

It began when a Texas court declared a transgender man to be woman, and she then legally married another woman in Nevada.

Linda Gail Carter, 60, is asking state Family Court Judge Lisa Millard to void her marriage to Constance Gonzales.

Carter said she first realized she was a female when she was 6 years old and known as James Murphy.
