Last week the Mexican Supreme Court ruled that Mexico City’s marriage equality law was constitutional. Today the Court ruled by a 9-2 vote that those marriages are valid nationally. This means that even if other Mexican states don’t have marriage equality laws, they have to treat LGBT couples married in Mexico City the same as straight couples.
Mexico City’s marriage equality law includes a clause granting couples the right to adopt. The court will take up that question this Thursday.
¡No es matrimonio gay, es matrimonio igualitario!
It’s not gay marriage, it’s marriage equality!
