New Mexico Affirms Gay Marriage

The New Mexico Supreme Court "ruled in favor of same-sex couples, granting them all the same rights of marriage enjoyed by heterosexual couples," the Albuquerque Journal reports.

From the opinion: "All rights, protections, and responsibilities that result from the marital relationship shall apply equally to both same-gender and opposite-gender married couples."

"New Mexico joins 16 other states, the District of Columbia, and several Native American tribes in recognizing same-sex unions."
