FORT WORTH — Two women made a Valentine's Day vow in Tarrant County Tuesday, but it wasn't "I do."
Activists walked into the Fort Worth city clerk's office and were denied their application a marriage license.
"The State of Texas does not allow same sex-marriages," they were told.
The women vowed to keep trying, saying their fight for equality is not over yet.
Right now, six states and Washington D.C. have legalized same-sex marriage, and more could soon join the list.
The governor of Washington signed a same-sex marriage bill into law on Monday, and an appeals court struck down a gay marriage ban in California.
New Jersey lawmakers passed legislation to legalize gay marriage, but the governor has promised to veto it.
