Although same-sex marriage isn’t legally recognized in Texas, The Houston Chronicle reports that during her time as mayor, Annise has spearheaded efforts to allow health and life insurance benefits to spouses of legally married couples regardless of sexual orientation. Congrats to the couple and their family!
