Than you for your question. Prisoners have a federal constitutional right to marry, seehttp://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-supreme-court/482/78.html You could get married in Texas, which allows proxy marriages, seehttp://www.sfreporter.com/santafe/article-7482-wed-lock.htmlor you could sue for an injunction and a declaratory judgment that the new law is unconstitutional as applied to prisoners. You can get a free consultation from some of the civil rights attorneys listed by location here. Please follow up on this with a local attorney. I hope this information is helpful.
