Marriage equality comes to all of Mexico

Timothy Kincaid

August 10th, 2010

According to the AP, all of Mexico is now subject to the New York State approach to marriage equality:

Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that all 31 states must recognize same-sex marriages performed in the capital, though its decision does not force those states to begin marrying gay couples in their territory.

In a 9-2 decision, the tribunal cited an article of the constitution requiring states to recognize legal contracts drawn up elsewhere.

Yet another Catholic country lines up for equality, and now we’re completely surrounded by gay marriage.

Eventually, perhaps sometime shortly after Jamaica and Guyana, the US equality domino will drop.

Sounds like Mexico actually pays attention to its version of the Full Faith and Credit Clause
