Mexico Supreme Court: Mexico City’s Gay Marriage Law Can Stay

In a 8-2 ruling, Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled Mexico City’s six-month-old same-sex marriage law, passed in December, is just fine, as it doesn’t violate the Constitution. In fact, the Constitution offers no definition for “family,” so state prosecutors alleging it will harm the family don’t have any ground to stand on. That means the hundreds of couple who began marrying in March can keep their certificates. Update: In a 9-2 ruling, the court also said all Mexican states must recognize the capital’s gay marriages.

      The more data we have to collect from those that already have gay marriage, the better it will be in the long run.
