Mexico Upholds Gay Marriage Law
By Elayne Fluker | 08/09/2010 - 08:00 |
Mexico's Supreme Court upheld a law that went into effect in March legalizing gay marriage in Mexico City. The law, which also allows same-sex couples to adopt, was found constitutional in an 8-to-2 vote. The ruling came just a day after a California judge overturned Proposition 8, which defined marriage as a partnership solely between a man and a woman.
The Court in Mexico didn't determine whether the law will affect jurisdictions in the rest of the country. The constitutionality of the portion of the law that allows these couples to adopt will be determined next week.
