Texas Judge Tells Lesbian to Boot Partner or Lose Kids

What is this, the '80s?

Page Price and Carolyn Compton have been together for almost three years, but a Collin County judge is forcing them apart.

Judge John Roach Jr., a Republican who presides over the 296th District Court, enforced the "morality clause" in Compton's divorce papers on Tuesday, May 7. Under the clause, someone who has a "dating or intimate relationship" with the person or is not related "by blood or marriage" is not allowed after 9 p.m. when the children are present. Price was given 30 days to move out of the home because the children live with the couple.

Price posted about the judge's ruling on Facebook last week, writing that the judge placed the clause in the divorce papers because he didn't like Compton's "lifestyle."
