LGBT Couples Tie the Knot on Anniversary of Mexico City Same Sex-Marriage Law

go to original
March 22, 2014

Nearly 60 gay couples got married at a mass wedding ceremony on Friday in Mexico City four years after the same sex-marriage law went into effect in Mexico's capital.

Thirty-seven women and 21 men exchanged vows at the Mexico City Museum.

The Mexico City registry judge officiated the ceremony attended by the Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera, among other city officials.

A Supreme Court ruling requires all same-sex marriages performed in Mexico City to be recognized in all 31 Mexican states.

Mexico City's same-sex marriage law was enacted in March 2010 and extends married gay couples the right to adopt children, to jointly apply for bank loans, to inherit wealth and to be covered by their spouses' insurance policies.

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Jose Ramon Amieva, Mexico City registry judge:

"I pronounce you united in legitimate marriage in the name of the law and society with all the rights and prerogatives that law grants you, as well as the obligations that the same law imposes on you. Congratulations to the 58 couples and we hope that your marriage will be filled with prosperity and happiness."

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Nancy Martinez, newlywed:

"It was long overdue. We've been together 14-15 years. Since we love each other, it was time."
