There have been 398 same-sex marriages in Mexico City since the groundbreaking law legalizing gay nuptials took effect March 11, city officials said Sept. 6. Fifty-three percent of the marriages have been between men, and 41 foreigners have married a Mexican citizen of the same sex.
The nation’s Supreme Court recently upheld Mexico City’s same-sex marriage law and, in a second ruling, also upheld the part of it that legalized adoption by married same-sex couples. The court further ruled that Mexico’s 31 states must recognize same-sex marriages from Mexico City.
