From Iowa to Texas: "How to Unmarry Your Wife"

Mar 17, 2015

Imagine you are married and have a daughter. When your spouse gets a job in another state, you plan for everything - including the fact that your new state does not recognize your same-sex marriage.

Today on River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with Sarah Viren about her move from Iowa City to Lubbock, Texas, recounted in her essay, “How to Unmarry Your Wife."

Also joining the conversation is Lambda Legal Senior Staff Attorney and Marriage Project Director, Camilla Taylor, who was lead counsel in Varnum v. Brien. Ed Reggi also joins the show to talk about the "Marriage Equality Bus," which he started with his husband in order to help Missouri same-sex couples get married in Iowa.
