The Texas Constitution bans same sex marriage or alternative arrangement schemes. So the majority has spoken and rules. Getting medical and other benefits from your employer whether private or government is not a constitutional rights issue. If gays want to get married no one is stopping them as long as it is in state where it is permitted. Also, most private employers will deny or terminate your dependent medical coverage unless you can prove you are legally married pursuant to state law.
