New Mexico Sets Date for Marriage Hearing

It’s kind of ridiculous that we’re still even having this debate, but the New Mexico Supreme Court announced late last week that they’ll be stepping in to decide whether or not it’s OK for people to be getting married.

As you’ll recall, a couple of NM counties started issuing licences last month; mostly because of some lawsuits, but also thanks to some bold clerks who just decided to go for it. Now everyone’s scrambling to figure out exactly what the law actually allows, and also to rent some tuxedos.

We also have an impending decision in Pennsylvania, where couples have been getting married for weeks. And in South Carolina, where a delightful lesbian couple is challenging the state ban. And in Hawaii, where lawmakers have yet to decide whether they’ll call for a special session to pass a marriage bill.
