Mexico Supreme Court Upholds Same-Sex Marriage

Same-sex couples celebrated as the Mexican Supreme Court upheld a new law permitting same-sex marriage in Mexico City, ruling that individual states should not be allowed to make their own decisions about whether to permit same-sex marriage. The court will rule soon on two other aspects of the law: whether gay couples can adopt children, and whether the marriages in the capital city must be recognized in other districts.
