Marriage Momentum Continues in Mexico

by Ashley Fowler January 28, 2016

On Tuesday, the Mexican Supreme Court unanimously voted to allow same-sex marriages in another Mexican state, Jalisco. In an 11-0 vote, the justices ruled that the language in the Jalisco constitution, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman, was discriminatory.

Jalisco, which contains Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city, and Puerto Vallarta, a popular tourist destination, is the seventh jurisdiction in Mexico with marriage equality. Same-sex couples can also marry in the states of Coahuila, Quintana Roo, Nayarit, Guerrero, and Chihuahua, and in Mexico City.

While Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional last June, that ruling is considered a “jurisprudential thesis” and did not invalidate state laws. Advocates on the ground continue to work diligently, as the battle for marriage equality continues state by state.
