Mexico (technically) Legalizes Gay Marriage






  • Basically Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that state laws restricting marriage only to heterosexual couples was discriminatory.

  • From the Supreme Court Ruling: "As the purpose of matrimony is not procreation, there is no justified reason that the matrimonial union be heterosexual, nor that it be stated as between only a man and only a woman. Such a statement turns out to be discriminatory in its mere expression."

  • The ruling lets gay couples denied marriage in their state to seek injunctions from district judges.
