Connie Wilson says the Texas DPS refused to issue her a license after learning she was married to another woman
HOUSTON — A woman who has just moved to Texas from California says she is being denied a legal Texas driver’s license.
Connie Wilson and her partner Aimee relocated to the Houston area with their three kids. Connie took on Aimee’s last name when they were legally married in California more than a year ago.
However, Connie Wilson said she is now being told that name doesn’t legally belong to her in the Lone Star State.
“It’s really hard to accept that someone is telling me I can’t have my name,” she said. “I was denied based on a marriage license.”
