State Denying Name Changes To Same-Sex Couples

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is turning away same-sex couples married in other states who seek to have their names changed on driver's licenses and other state documents. State legislators banned same-sex marriage in a statute and voters did the same in the state constitution. The result is, as more Tennessee couples go to one of the 13 states and Washington, D.C., where same-sex marriages are recognized, they are having trouble getting it recognized back home. Complicating matters is the federal government now recognizes same-sex couples and allows Social Security cards to be issued in married names. The Tennessean reported that attorneys are recruiting potential couples for a lawsuit challenging the state's ban.
